LATW's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES with James Marsters Kicks Off Today
L.A. Theatre Works will record the California premiere of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles," adapted by David Pichette and R. Hamilton Wright, and starring Seamus Dever, Sarah Drew, James Marsters, and Geoffrey Arend, along with Wilson Bethel, Christopher Neame, Darren Richardson, Moira Quirk and Henri Lubatti, this weekend, June 12-15.
Dever (Castle), Drew (Grey's Anatomy), Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Arend (Super Troopers, 500 Days of Summer) star in the California premiere of this fresh take on Sherlock Holmes' most baffling case that adds a flair of contemporary wit to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic whodunit. The sole surviving Baskerville returns from Canada to fight the ancient curse of a supernatural hound, adjust to the strange class system and fall in love with his beautiful neighbor. All performances will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes) to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
The production will be recorded at James Bridges Theater at UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television
