THE PLAY: After the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes, 3 men appear at an asylum claiming to be him. It’s up to his longtime assistant Dr. Watson to solve the mystery.

 

THE PRODUCTION: First off, don’t try to figure out whodunnit, just enjoy the fun. And there’s plenty to be had. The cast creates a solid ensemble and John Moon’s direction keeps the complications moving along. Without Joe Doran’s moody lighting and Tom Width’s heavy, gloomy (in a good way) set, this mystery wouldn’t be half as mysterious. Combine that with Moon’s skill with striking stage pictures and you have a masterful visual treat. Maura Lynch Cravey’s costumes are historically and artistically appropriate. Running time: 1:10

 

THE POINT: This mystery is enjoyable to watch and even more impressively staged.

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
