Southern Theater
World Premiere
February 23rd, 1995
Minneapolis, MN

Extended Version 1998
Hennepin Center for the Arts, Minneapolis, MN
a steamy, satirical, multimedia extravaganza


Able to leap entire decades in a single bound, Kari Margolis and Tony Brown play two intense yet hilariously unhinged vampires. Obsessed with eternal youth they are like the celluloid stars of the Hollywood orbit and will never age. After a century of sucking up a host of cinematic and other pop cultural images they fervently continue their bizarre pursuit of the meaning of love and life.

VIDPIRES! featured the world premiere of Margolis and Brown's original Vampire Songs performed by a LIVE DEAD BAND.

A little scary but funny, 'Vidpires' is a deftly done look at culture
