A little like watching a movie play out on stage. Not the most high-brow experience, but that's not what you'd expect. It was a very fun time indeed, and you certainly can't beat the price. Highly recommended!

Excellent production! Performance time ran nearly three and a half hours (including intermission) -- dwarfing the time it took to get to the inconvenient location. Highly recommended.

I wanted to see this performance for a number of reasons: the hyped costumes, the talented cast, the unusual presentation. But really, I wanted to see how such an expansive, winding, hilarious tale like Neverwhere could be adapted for the stage. ...continued

I was curious whether the theatre could create the whole new world of Gaiman's book, but was amazed at how well they succeeded through creative use of space, interesting costumes, and a talented cast. Rarely do I feel as transported by a play as...continued

The novel Neverwhere is my favorite--so I was a bit nervous heading into Rorscach Theater's stage adaption. I shouldn't have worried though; the production was extremely faithful to the novel and truly captured its modern urban "down the rabbit...continued

I'm a Neil Gaiman fan, but I haven't yet read Neverwhere. I thought the production was brilliant--the acting was strong, the fight choreography well done, the set design perfect, the costumes spot on, the lighting, the puppetry, the sound...continued

Much better than hoped for. Actors did a very good job, the set & costumes were wonderful, and the little touches outside of the theatre were also appreciated. They made excellent use of the space at hand, re-told the story wonderfully (I felt it...continued

The night I saw the show was first preview, so I expected a few kinks in the show; however, I was pleasantly surprised. The show ran smoothly and was really excellent! The company did an excellent job of taking you out of the everyday and...continued

This play was amazing! And the Atlas Theater is so great. I have lived down the street for year and never been inside. It's a lot fancier than you would think and really nice inside.

This show was one of the best I've seen in DC. I was going to be a hard sell, because I love the novel it's based on and have read it many times, but I thought the adapted script was very elegant in its condensation and translation of the book....continued

This was a pretty impressive performance considering the source material. It was a completely immersive experience with the story taking place all around you. In terms of the set design, this immersion really was the only way to describe London...continued

Wife loves anything Neil Gaiman and normally dislikes adaptations, but she LOVED this performance. I did too because I felt it was such a good adaptation especially considering the subject matter, which in a traditional theater setting wouldn't...continued
