Dracula Toy Theatre
Manufacturer: Pomegrante Communications, Inc.
This pop-up toy theatre unfolds into three stage sets, illustrated by Edward Gorey, and derived from the Broadway production of Dracula. In these sets you can position the paper furniture and characters. For example, you can place Count Dracula and Lucy Sweard in her boudoir standing on a paper carpet. Accompanying the theatre is a booklet with notes on Edward Gorey and the Dracula play.
A truly prodigious and original artist, Edward St. John Gorey (1925-2000), gave to the world over one hundred works, including The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Doubtful Guest and The Wuggly Ump; prize-winning set and costume designs for innumerable theater productions from Cape Cod to Broadway; a remarkable number of illustrations in publications such as The New Yorker and The New York Times, and in books by a wide array of authors from Charles Dickens to Edward Lear, Samuel Beckett, John Updike, Virginia Woolf, H.G. Wells, Florence Heide and many others. His well known animated credits for the PBS Mystery series have introduced him to millions of television viewers. Gorey’s masterful pen and ink illustrations and his ironic, offbeat humor have brought him critical acclaim and an avid following throughout the world.
