Paul S. Holmquist's nicely paced production of Neil Gaiman's 1996 fantasy novel, about an ordinary guy's adventures in a magical alternative London hidden deep below the real one, proves that you don't need a big expensive set or computer-generated effects to tell a rich, riveting, action-packed story. You just need a creative crew and an adept cast--both of which this production has in spades. Alan Donahue's intricate, inventive set deserves special praise for providing just enough to suggest dozens of locations over the course of the play (a London office; the British Museum; a deep, dark tunnel). Robert Kauzlaric, who also adapted, makes a terrific hero, though he and his heroine, Katie McLean--playing the mysterious woman, Door, who leads him into the lower depths--lack chemistry. --Jack Helbig
