Stage Door: Bleed a Little (and Save)

I'm a regular blood donor, so I'm pleased to tell you that you can help out Hoxworth Blood Center and help yourself a little, too, thanks to Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. Starting next week, the company will do its part for Halloween when it presents Giles Davies in a creepy production of Dracula (Oct. 15 - Nov. 7). To set the mood, Cincy Shakes has arranged for a bloodmobile to do a collection in Piatt Park —-(right around the corner from their Race Street theater downtown) between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday.

They promise it's for a worthy cause — not for onstage gore. Hoxworth thirsts for blood on a steady basis, even more than the rapacious Count. But if you give in to the bloodmobile folks today, you'll be better for the experience: A blood donation will entitle you to a 20% discount on Dracula tickets.
