The actors were fantastic! I had no idea what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised! I highly recommend it. I think its a little pricey at 40$ but at GoldStar price it is an absolute must watch for anyone who enjoys Holmes and comedy all...continued

I loved everything about the performance. I've loved Sherlock Holmes from childhood, so I was surprised to recognize the plot in such a madcap farce. The actors were all engaging, talented, and delightful to watch. Anyone who likes goofy...continued

I brought visiting family to see the show and we all enjoyed it. It's fun to watch the three actors scramble around the stage as they switch roles, and the play is clever. At the Goldstar price, it was certainly worth it.

Hilarious! Lots of slapstick, plays on words, clever set changes. Only three actors play all the characters, which works well for this particular Sherlock Holmes story because Holmes is absent from much of it! Two out of the three actors are...continued

Outstanding performance by all 3 actors (or was it 10). Witty, clever, fast-paced. A nice venue, also. Go see it-you won't be disappointed.

We treated my son, daughter-in-law, and 9-year old grand-daughter to dinner and the show. Great evening - grand-daughter thought it lots of fun. Cast did a fine job. I've seen Remo in many ART productions - an inspired choice for Holmes and the...continued

Play was excellent!! A must see for a night out filled with hilarity. Stage design was very creative. Lots of small details that added to the show. All the actors were superb. I am so glad that the other reviews sealed the deal for us to go. ...continued

It was a wonderfully funny adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes story. The staging and acting were superb. Special 'shout out' to Remo who is really a treasure and my favorite local actors. A.R.T.'s loss is certainly 'our' gain. He was a riot as...continued

I highly recommend seeing this - it was well acted and we laughed non-stop. Don't worry if you aren't familiar with Sherlock Holmes or this particular story - it is still a great night out! Go see it - you won't be disappointed.

This was our second year seeing The Hound. We loved it as much this year! The actors are fantastic and hugely entertaining. The venue is small and there really isn't a bad seat. A fun night out and definitely recommended.

I went with my son, who is 20. It helps get the humor of the play if you are familiar with the style of Sherlock Holmes. My son wasn't as familiar with it and didn't like it as much as I did. The piece is sort of like sketch comedy around the...continued

The acting was spectacular! It was so hilarious!!! The 3 actors are very talented juggling the different characters makes it even more interesting. Even my 14 yr old girl enjoyed it. This is a must see!

We truly enjoyed this play. The actors were outstanding. Mr. Airaldi had numerous,funny, facial expressions that reminded us of the late Buddy Hackett. Have recommended this production to others.

The three actors that made up the play were incredibly quick and in perfect harmony! They did an amazing job of creating a captivating story with a minimum of setting and a modest amount of effects.

I enjoyed it thoroughly and felt that they...continued

Great script. The actors had so much fun that it instilled even more enjoyment from the audience. One got much more sense of them as individuals.

We only saw the lst act, during intermission one of the actor hurt his leg and had to go to the hospital so the 2nd act was cancelled. I am waiting to hear back from the theatre as to what show I want to go to.
