BWW Review: Ken Ludwig's BASKERVILLE A SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERY at Stage Coach Theater
by Leesa Williams - Oct 31, 2017

BASKERVILLE: A Sherlock Holmes MYSTERY at Stage Coach Theatre directed by Curtis Ransom is a fast-paced comedy revolving around the famous detective and a curious mystery. A cast of five actors tell the tale that involves more than 40 different characters. Sherlock and the ever present side-kick, Dr. Watson, are played by Diana Holdridge and Don VanPraag. It is a bold choice to gender bend a beloved character like Sherlock, but Ransom made an excellent pick because Holdridge is strong as the title character. Her characterization is terrific in all parts and the know-it-all is still likeable and brilliant. VanPraag found just the right element of the 'straight-man' in this quirky comedy as the bulk of the action revolves around Dr. Watson's presence and he also plays the narrator from time to time.

by Shari Barrett - Nov 21, 2017
