  Neverwhere at Atlas Performing Arts Center


Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H Street NE Washington

Enter a hidden world that lurks below the London city streets, where fallen angels, monsters and magic are real and an ordinary businessman can become a hero. Based on the cult classic novel by sci-fi and fantasy master Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, whose mundane life is changed forever when he encounters a young woman in distress named Door. His attempt to help her leads him to the parallel world of London Below, where all kinds of fantastic creatures make their home. On the run from deadly assassins, Richard and Door must make their way across the deadly darkness of Night's Bridge and through the weird and wonderful communities of London Below in search of the Angel Islington, who will help them ... for a price. Rorschach Theatre's production brings Gaiman's metropolitan wonderland to brilliant and colorful life on stage at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, D.C.

BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended

"...Neverwhere, as adapted for the stage by Chicago native Robert Kauzlaric, is the culmination of a series of artistic endeavors, beginning with the BBC TV series co-written by Gaiman and British comedian Lenny Henry (he of "Chef!!" fame). Its incarnations, like the worlds the story itself evokes, have been many, with film, audio, comic and print versions preceding Rorschach's original show. Now reimagined as a completely immersive experience with stunning graphics designed by Pixelumen Labs, director Jenny McConnell Frederick has brought a fantasy world experience that keeps you fully engaged for every minute of its (rather lengthy) running time."

"...Rorschach Theatre’s production of Neverwhere is a consuming, absorbing, frustrating, and exhilarating exploration of mythic quests, hidden heroes, and acceptance not just of who we are, but who we were always meant to be."

"...Much of this spectacular fodder seems repeated from the previous round of Neverwhere. But what isn't repeated, and what really grabs attention in this long epic are London Below's supporting characters, many of whom are played by new actors. Instant faves are the villains Croup (Robert Bowen Smith) and Vandermar (Lee Liebeskind), who have got a queerish fop/thug and otter/bear vibe that gives this production life. Megan Reichelt flexes her actor-combatant muscles (with more emphasis on the latter) as Hunter. Most fun is the several times when she and Liebeskind scrap onstage, since their IRL marriage seems to have added some zing to their blows. Returners include Cam Magee as an angel and Grady Weatherford as the rapscallion Marquis de Carabas whose lines have a well-practiced punch."
