Listen to Neverwhere free online, then see it in person

Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere is one of my favorite novels; now you can listen to it free online on BBC Radio 4 and enjoy it in person at Robert Kauzlarik's stage production, which opens next month in LA after runs in Chicago and elsewhere. The story of a good-hearted Scotsman who finds a dreamlike alternative London Underground, it was originally released as a BBC TV show and an accompanying bestseller. "It's hard to put into words how magical it is to have the chance to step into the skin of a character you've loved for years," says Paula Rhodes, who plays Door, Richard's connection to the underworld, in the new production. " … Door is a wonderful mixture of strength and fragility and I'm absolutely in love with her and her world." The official site has tix and cinemagraphs.
