Adapted for the stage by Robert Kauzlaric

from the novel by Neil Gaiman

Rorschach Theatre 2013

"Directed by Jenny McConnell Frederick, this visually stunning production delivers a tried and true justice to the phantasmagorical magnificence that is Gaiman’s work. A brilliantly haunting tale with cracks of sparkling magic woven seamless into every element of the production, it’s the most mystifying show you’ll see all season." – DC Metro Theatre Arts

"The inventive Rorschach Theatre has a flair for cult fantasy, but the troupe has upped its game big-time for the sprawling Neverwhere. The wild plot careens through a seedy underworld known as London Below, and the set takes up all of a large black-box theater where the actors make use of every corner of the room. Victorian assassins, fallen angels, a time-warp fop, pirates and prostitutes, plus helpful rats and huge scary beasts — the apparitions seem never-ending." – Washington Post

"Lovers of fantasy and graphic novels will eat up the whole demonic enchilada, especially the deliciously gruesome touches—the squeaky patter of the rats, the audioscape of dripping water and echoing groans, the crumbling London Underground signs and crumbling columns that hint at the world above ground, the 360-degree staging that envelopes you in every aspect of the experience." – DC Theatre Scene

"Rorschach Theatre has managed to capture every drop of weirdness, humor, and fascination that the original novel and miniseries had in spades." – MD Theatre Guide

"Gaiman fans will leave thrilled they’ve seen their favorite tome or BBC series fleshed out so thoroughly. But fans of books alone don’t sell out theaters: Brilliant, 3D productions do." – Washington City Paper
