Count Vlad wants to regain his humanity, but urges and temptations are strong. He was infected a few centuries ago, and doesn’t seem to be able to die. He has addictions: heroin...and the body and blood of virgins. He retreats to an asylum in England on the North Sea. But the doctor there has two lovely daughters! Can he avert his eyes? Will his sobriety hold? Will love save him or destroy him?

"Romantic, dark, erotic….”

A musical for our times!

+ Put aside the supernatural for a tale that stirs the blood and heightens  the  pheromones. 

Haunting ballads you'll long to hear again

+ Throbbing rhythms of the sensual tango

A touch of Hamiltonian rap

+ A comic turn between butler and cook

+ A rousing drinking song sure to become an anthem!


"Tango Argentino" took American theaters by storm.  

“Dancing with the Stars" has 11 million viewers

 -- and they all wait to see the “red-hot tango.”  



Why is “Blood Tango…” a musical for RIGHT NOW?​

​It’s about a man who has good intentions to reform, but is overcome by his addiction to drugs and sex: 

20 million Americans addicted to drugs and  10 million to sex.

(#MeToo)  - Between the seduction of the innocent and women using their own power to decide.

Teachers and students trysting: 15 reports per week 

Women protecting women--an immigrant, working-class woman who is the heroine!

An Hispanic soprano is the female lead.

A genetic mutation contracted from an attack of a colony of bats may have prolonged his life and stopped his aging.

Science is working diligently to find a way to manipulate genes to stop aging and extend life

It is about loneliness, since he is different, and any friends have long since passed.

An expressed theme is that he is looking for acceptance, for family.  

Half of all Americans felt alone before COVID!

He tries to change his nature from Alpha  which men are trying to do right now.
