Creature of the Night

    With copious amounts of face and body paint, not to mention creativity and
    talent, makeup artist Angelina Avallone transforms gentle-looking Michael
    Crawford (Broadway's original Phantom Of The Opera) into seductive
    bloodsucker Count von Krolock - and 30 Transylvanian peasants into dancing
    vampires - in the new pop-rock musical Dance Of The Vampires (Minskoff
    Theatre). Millennia-old creatures like the Count who sleep by day and sink
    their teeth into the necks of pretty, helpless prey by night, really exist,
    jokes Bulgarian-born Avallone.

    "Vampires are everywhere, even Times Square," she says, but none of those
    other fanged ghouls are as totally captivating as Crawford.

    "He's sexy and scary and looks like a rock star," she coos.

    Will the mistress of eye-shadow and the hemoglobin-hungry hunk be
    trick-or-treating together on Halloween?

    Don't be batty, she insists. "I'll be backstage, up to my elbows in makeup."
