by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2018

Sierra Rep is proud to present Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, a fast-paced comedy that faithfully hews to Arthur Conan Doyle's novel about Holmes and Watson vs. evil. The game's afoot as male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one. The renowned sleuth Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted sidekick Doctor Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir. Five talented actors, playing forty quirky characters, follow leads, unravel clues, hit dead-ends, and zigzag through the story until the shockingly funny conclusion. The gimmick here is that our pair of protagonists are surrounded by an ensemble of three delightful comic actors who play everyone else. Watching our troupe change among 40 different characters, both quickly off-stage (and even more quickly on-stage) is nothing short of amazing. (more...)
