The show was interesting. Very slow at times and even confusing. It felt like a first time show for the director. From beginning to end it seemed like a mess. The horrible thing about the event was all the chaos. I've never seen this at any one of goldstar events i've been to. We arrived at 7:30, (the event started at 8:00) and the box office wasn't open yet. So the line began to form out the door down the hall. A woman came out and asked if anyone was picking up tickets, and if so, only A-M can come through and pick up tickets. So through we went to wait another 10 minutes in another space when two women were trying to get the tickets together. It was ridiculously obvious that these women were overwhelmed with what they had to do and there was no organization at all. One woman handed you the tickets and the other checked your ID like she was the FBI. C'mon, I don't think anyone is trying to take anyone elses ticket. The show started about 15 minutes late, and there was still chaos going on with other people's seating. By the time the show was over, we were exhausted. I would go again if there were free tickets during the week. Other than that, don't waste your money.

Blood Rose Rising is a supernatural romantic thriller. It tells the story of Robert Blackwood, a young history professor living in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who inherits a tumbledown Victorian mansion from his estranged father, the brilliant and mysterious Ulysses Blackwood, member of a long line of scientific and medical luminaries. Robert finds that the house is haunted by the presence of a beautiful Victorian woman, Rose. His growing obsession with her leads him to discover that by spilling the blood of the living, he can temporarily restore her to life. He sets out down the dark road between good and evil, murder and salvation, life and death.
With cast members Calvin Braxton, Andrew Cromartie, Poornima Kirby, Aimee Rose Ranger, Casey Preston, Dakota Shepard, Victor Shopov and Robert St. Laurence and live music by local bands, notably indy sensation Alchemilla, Blood Rose Rising promises many evenings of vivid, high-powered entertainment.
Blood Rose Rising was created by Ben Evett, who has been an innovator on the Boston scene for over 20 years. A member of the A.R.T. Resident Acting Company from 1993-2003, Evett went on to found the Actors’ Shakespeare Project, and led its remarkable growth from a small start-up to a cornerstone of the Boston theatre scene from 2004-2009. The scripts for the series are co-written by Evett and Steve Barkhimer, who is himself a theatrical renaissance man. Well known as a brilliant actor, director and musician, Barkhimer is also a skilled playwright who studied under the tutelage of Derek Walcott at Boston University and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center’s John Cauble Award for Best Short Play of 2009.
The show is recommended for those ages 12 and older, as it contains some strong language, loud sound effects and music, and violence.
