I decided you needed to be a vamp-fan, which unfortunately I am not. So I sat back and tried to enjoy the clawed hands, possessed looks, evil cackles and smeared blood. For the group of young women in front of me, the performers reaching between the legs and gesturing as though licking their own juices was just too much, and there were gasps, squeals and turning away in disgust. The show was stolen by the talented acting abilities of the little evil one whose giggling, whispering, squeaking interludes provoked irresistible laughter in the audience.
