SHERLOCK THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS to Open 8/16 at The Whitmore Theatre
London, 1885. Seemingly disparate citizens are falling victim to a plague of madness which continually evokes - in increasingly curious ways - the whimsical worlds of Lewis Carroll. As the mystery deepens, the only thing becoming clearer is the proper man for the job. But what happens when Sherlock Holmes - the world's foremost logician - enters a realm where logic does not exist?
"We are but older children, dear
Who fret to find our bedtime near."
Inevitable and surprising, dark and humorous, fresh yet classically-minded, canonical yet entirely its own, Sherlock Through The Looking-Glass deftly explores the nature of reality, the choices we make, and the legacy we leave.
Following their two highly successful 2013 Fringe offerings, The Porters of Hellsgate mark the sixth production of their seventh season with a rip-roaring journey across London, through Wonderland, and back again: a world premiere play in two acts by Gus Krieger, adapted from the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Lewis Carroll.
Sherlock Through The Looking-Glass opens Friday, August 16th at 8pm at The Whitmore Theatre: 11006 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA, 91601. The production will run Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm, through Sunday, September 22nd, 2013, closing the six week run. Sherlock will run approximately 2 hours with one intermission.
