Horror isn't the most common of genres for theatrical productions, but some plays and musicals did well with audiences. Dracula is a horror icon who successfully transitioned from novels to the stage and continued his dark theatrical success for over a century. Today, a theatrical production can stream live online and captivate horror fans across the globe. With horror productions, even low-budget productions rely on special effects. Live events can't rely on retakes, so working with an experienced stage crew becomes essential.
