Neverwhere

Tonight was the first rehearsal of an amazing show I am helping to produce at Sacred FoolsNeverwhere. The play is written by Robert Kauzlaric, adapted from the novel by Neil Gaiman, and being directed by Scott Leggett. I've been a fan of this novel for years and to be working on this show with this dream team is simply incredible. The cast is a bunch of freaking rock stars! And every time Neil Gaiman tweets about our production to his millions of followers… I have a little nerdgasm. More info to come… but here are the details:

April 5 - May 11, 2013 Fridays & Saturdays @ 8pm Sundays @ 7pm
Tickets: $25 Ticket sales coming March 15

WEST COAST PREMIERE! 
When Richard Mayhew stops to care for an injured girl on the street, he is drawn into a nightmare shadow world beneath the city of London. To return to his normal life, Richard must brave countless trials, uncover the truth behind a dark conspiracy, and face the indomitable Great Beast. Journey to London Below with a rogues’ gallery of liars, outcasts and assassins, on a treacherous voyage to awaken the hero within.
