Winner of the 2012 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Play, Ken Ludwig's The Game's Afoot (or Holmes for the Holidays) blends comedy, mystery and mistletoe to great effect. It's December 1936, and world-renowned actor William Gillette, best known for originating the role of Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his castle in Connecticut for a holiday weekend of good old-fashioned carousing. But it's not long before one of the guests is discovered ... dead. Now it's up to Gillette himself to live up to his onscreen persona and identify the killer before he strikes again in this hilarious whodunit set during the Christmas season. Learn More

Somewhat disappointing - voices were not as good as they could have been. HORRIBLE static from the body mike on one of the performers. The poor actress couldn't do anything but keep going. Next scene, she was holding a hand mike.
Also, the material itself not the greatest. I know some of the songs were chosen to move the "plot" along, but there are so many better Sondheim songs out there.
I have definitely seen better works at WaterTower.
WaterTower Theatre is renowned for holding open auditions for each production so it’s highly unusual for Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin to pre-select talent months before the scheduled performance. But that’s exactly what he did for this iconic role previously played by Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett on Broadway.
“From the moment I saw Diana’s work it was clear that she was gifted,” says Martin. “She’s an exceptionally skilled actor and singer, and that’s exactly what we needed to carry this show.”
According to Diana, when Martin let her know he was thinking of producing the show and asked if she was interested in the lead role, she jumped at the opportunity. Why her enthusiasm for this particular role? “Two words,” emphasizes Diana. “Stephen. Sondheim.”
