"In what has to be the most unique show we have ever seen at Fringe, Crown City Theatre Company brings us the stage version of the classic 1922 film, Nosferatu. What makes it so unique is the complete lack of dialogue, other than what is projected on the back wall, and the amazing voice of the narrator. "
"The Crown City Theater in North Hollywood, under the direction and inspiration of writer/director William A. Reilly, has unleashed an astonishingly bizarre live stage presentation of Murnau’s silent vampire classic. Entitled NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY IN TERROR it is at once both a unique and surreal homage to the nearly one hundred year old German film magically unveiled before our very eyes."
"Between the choreography and the camp and the classical music, Nosferatu would be entertaining at its least. But its further enhanced by Holmes as the mesmerizing Count — the quintessence of evil and elegance, elevated to the plane of archetype. The other notable highlight is the wonderfully graceful dancing by Bolshakova, a classically trained ballerina. Both elements stand out amongst the spirited work from the game ensemble, in an imaginative show."
"Crown City Theatre Company's silent theater piece of the same title, adapted and directed by company co-founder William A. Reilly, pays effective homage to the Murnau film not with a scene-by-scene reenactment, but by presenting a thematically faithful evocation of its essential plot and characterizations."
"It’s something everyone should see. Crown City Theater production of “Nosferatu” is a wonderful experience that you can’t see anywhere else. Really. It’s performance art mixed with drama and in a full blown horror theme that will literally creep you out on so man levels. This is well written, well directed, well cast and a theatrical experience you will never forget. Theatre is amazing overall – “Nosferatu” is the kind of production that will remind you exactly why that is."
"As overused as the adjective “unique” may be, in the case of Nosferatu it most definitely applies. This one-of-a-kind Symphony In Terror is not to be missed."
"Nosferatu: A Symphony in Terror is a silent film onstage with classical music, ballet and a splendid cast of nine actors, directed with remarkable precision by Reilly."
"It is beautifully choreographed and adapted from the original German 1922 expressionist horror film of the same name. As the Crown City Theater promotes this entry into the festival this year, we appreciate their artistry and dedication to making this production available for audiences to experience. This haunting show definitely highlights the festival’s theme of celebrating freedom of expression with an artistic vision unhindered by any governing body. It is well worth seeing especially for fans of this genre."
"This is the kind of play where you have to leave your sense of reason and doubt at the door, and I promise you won't be disappointed if you do."
"If you are a lover of vampire lore, ballet, silent film history—any or all of the above—you need to see Nosferatu A Symphony in Terror"
