On April 24,Tanz der Vampire began a touring production across Germany that concluded on March 17, From the premiere of Tanz der VampireEnglish producers were seeking to bring the show to English-speaking countries.
Efforts to return Polanski to the United States proved fruitless because of his unwillingness to face punishment for his earlier unlawful sexual intercourse with a minorleading first to postponing the show's opening to Halloween and then to the decision dated to roughly March  to seek a different director if Polanski could not return.
In Octobera tentative fall opening was announced, along with the declaration that Steinman himself would serve as the show's director,  despite having never directed for the stage.
Attempting to reassure doubters, Steinman asserted in interviews that "Half the show [in Vienna] I had to talk Polanski into doing, and did it behind his back a lot. He's a great guy but he had a totally different vision". John Caird was to co-direct, and comic playwright David Ives was helping to reconfigure the book with a view toward a more comic angle instead of a straightforward adaptation of the successful Austrian version, which was deemed to be written in a style no longer accepted by Broadway critics and audiences.
As Steinman later put it, looking back with a more jaundiced eye, "We were told to put five jokes on every page". The new version, described by Steinman to the press as "a big, Wagnerian musical with lots of humor [ Potential investors and producers seemed to love the score, but felt the new book with its mix of bawdy humor and eroticism needed fine-tuning. Unfortunately, Steinman's creative disagreements with his producing team at one point telling the press "I can't tell you how many things are the opposite of what I want, but I am part of a team" and their seeming inability to raise the investment money in time for a now-rather-unrealistic fall opening, led to tense situations backstage.
Finally, Waxman and Williams were ousted from the production, with Sonenberg assuming day-to-day responsibilities as the lead producer, a strategic move viewed by many as a power grab on Steinman's part as one source put it, "he has the final say on everything". At this point, the show needed some kind of drawing card to attract investors scared off by the previous snafus on the producing front.
Steinman was reportedly elated, calling him "a towering talent" and "probably the biggest box-office star in the theater. By the time an official deal with Crawford was announced,  by now downgraded to a yearlong contract in the role rather than three, he had been pulling his weight in the creative control department; as Sonenberg put it, "[He has been] working with us the last several months on input on the book.
Further casting sessions for secondary leads and ensemble were set for September As a consequence of the September 11 attackshowever, the game-plan changed significantly.
With most of the show's major creative team including co-director Caird based in London, a myriad of logistic delays were caused by mass cancellation of flights, among other variables. Realizing there was no way to open before the Tony cut-off as planned, and it later emerged unable to raise his share of the investment on time,  Sonenberg publicly announced the postponement of the show's opening to October Having postponed the show, the team sought to bring in additional producers who could help get the show in on time.
A creative team was also finally being assembled, including set designer David Gallowhom Steinman liked because Gallo told him upon meeting for the first time that he was probably the only set designer in America who still subscribed to Heavy Metal Magazineand that he bought Bat Out of Hell because he saw the album cover artwork conceived by Steinman and executed by Richard Corben and decided he had to have it before he even heard the music.
On paper, put together by talented people, Dance of the Vampires looked like magic. A celebrated rock composer, a critics' darling who had authored several Off-Broadway plays, a Tony-winning director, and a high-wattage Broadway star were the captains of this ship. However, rehearsals proved just how unsteady the ship actually was.
Rando had never directed a musical of this size, and quickly proved overwhelmed according to cast members. One was sensual and Gothic, the other was camp Rocky Horror. I knew the critics would kill us for that. We were the perfect target, a fat lady with a sign on her back that said, 'Kick me!
It later emerged that in truth, presumably for his inactivity if Steinman's account is believable, Steinman was fired from the show by his own manager, acting as producer. The show finally started previews after technological and creative delays at the Minskoff Theatre on October 18, Initially, the seemingly final result was an altered version with a lot of campy humor that differed considerably from the original show.
Although the show initially went well in sales based on Crawford's name for a time, the show played to packed houses in previews, and was in fourth place in terms of high-selling Broadway grosses without even having officially openedthe humor received some laughter and much criticism.
An attempt was made at arriving at a comfortable middle between the "two shows at war with each other," and original author Kunze was finally consulted for his opinion of what should be changed far too late, in his view. Other suggestions, such as cutting a new dramatic death scene for the Count and restoring some of the original German lyrics, met with more dissension, and Kunze withdrew those suggestions, not wishing to cause any trouble.
On a lighter note, entertainment mogul Howard Stringera friend of Crawford's, rang the final death knell for the weight-hiding costumes by telling Crawford he looked silly; from that point forward, the ruffled collars were gone.
Those major changes aside, the show seen in previews was still in flux, Album), and a show that changed huge amounts of its material nightly, which caused some trouble with the cast. After a prolonged period of development 61 previews in total, with two of the originally set opening dates missedthe English version of Dance of the Vampires opened on Broadway on December 9, This version of the show was Mannequin - Ivan Ives - Stranger (CD lambasted; the work of lead performer Michael Crawford was reviewed particularly harshly.
The show that is dear to me is still running in Vienna sic. The one at the Minskoff Mannequin - Ivan Ives - Stranger (CD just a job. He stated in other blog entries that his music was "wasted" on the show, and was careful to make a clear distinction between the Broadway version referred to as DOTV and the successful European version referred to as Tanz. On January 25,after 56 performances, Dance of the Vampires closed.
Note: Many changes in characterization were made for the Broadway version. This refers to the original European version. Asked at one point to explain the reuse of "Total Eclipse", Steinman explained, "That was an accident almost. I'm surprised it stayed in.
But with Total Eclipse of the HeartI was trying to come up with a love song and I remembered I actually wrote that to be a vampire love song. Its original title was Vampires in Love because I was working on a musical of Nosferatuthe other great vampire story. If anyone listens to the lyrics, they're really like vampire lines. It's all about the darkness, the power of darkness and love's place in dark. And so I figured 'Who's ever going to know; it's Vienna!
