SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE FINAL ADVENTURE Comes to Coronado Playhouse, Now thru 5/18
The world's greatest detective is back in a classic adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat in SHERLOCK HOLMES: The Final Adventure at the Coronado Playhouse today, April 11-May 18, 2014. As Sherlock Holmes seeks to wind down his career through the arrest of Professor Moriarty, he and Doctor Watson are drawn into a blackmail case that involves a king and a world-renowned opera singer, putting them on a collision course with Holmes' greatest enemy.
Inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the 1899 play written by William Gillette and Mr. Doyle, playwright Steven Dietz has written a spirited, fast-moving, and thoroughly theatrical adaptation that draws Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson into a mystery filled with danger, intrigue, wit, romance, and suspense. "The game is afoot, Watson!--And it is a dangerous one!"
Coronado Playhouse is known for its tradition of enticing mysteries brought to life in our intimate cabaret theatre setting. During the run of the 2007 Edgar Award-winning mystery, Coronado Playhouse, also known as the Community's Theatre, is partnering with the San Diego Public Library. Last fall, the City of San Diego premiered its new state-of-the-art domed central library downtown. The facility provides a home to the latest in technology along with educational and literacy services weaved into a diverse series of cultural programs. In addition, the landmark building houses the e3 civic charter high school.
Please consider making a cash or check donation to the San Diego Public Library Foundation during the run of Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure. All funds benefit library programs downtown and in all 35 area branches.
We are also partnering with our neighborhood Coronado Friends of the Library by hosting a book drive during the run of the show. The local library is in need of books in good condition or gently used including cookbooks, new fiction, novels, classics and children's literature. Bring donated books to the theater and drop them off in our Sherlock Holmes' private library shelves.
