by Herbert Paine (Tempe)

(9/2/2014) - Among the stars of Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, currently showing at Grand Canyon University's Ethington Theatre, are the crews responsible for set, lights, and wardrobe who have created atmospherics befitting a Sherlockian mystery.

The ensemble of talented young actors in this production of the play by Steven Dietz and directed by Claude Pensis, makes for a highly entertaining account of the (allegedly) final days of the legendary supersleuth as he confronts the double-barreled threats of Irene Adler and his ultimate nemesis, Professor Moriarty.
