Ambitious ‘Blood Rose Rising’ canceled
There’s nothing like a serial to keep people coming back. The idea has worked in literature, on movie screens, and on TV. It hasn’t been seen much onstage, but last February, Greater Boston got its own theatrical serial, Ben Evett and Steve Barkhimer’s “Blood Rose Rising.” In September, the series launched its second episode. But this month, on the eve of the third installment, the show closed. It’s too bad, because the project had a lot of promise.
