There are only a few days left to catch the tale of the Blood Countess.
Second Skin Theatre and director Andy McQuade’s current production of BLOOD PRIVILEGE, Don Fried’s theatrical retelling of the reign of terror Elizabeth Bathory bestowed is garnering great word and with only a few remaining NYC performances before its London premiere, it’s time to take a dip. BLOOD PRIVILEGE sees the culturally pervasive and “most powerful woman in 16th century Eastern Europe pursue beauty at any cost. But even the Bloody Countess can’t stop the onslaught of the years and the social and political chaos that is enveloping the world around her.”
The show runs Wednesday-Sunday evenings at 8 p.m. (with weekend matinees at 3 p.m.) at the Richmond Shepard Theatre (309 E. 26th St). You can see the trailer below, and find more info and tickets right here.
