Central Works' 24th season gets off to a roaring start with The Lion and the Fox, an intense political drama that finds Niccolo Machiavelli, the author of the famed "handbook for tyrants," facing off against one of history's great villains, Cesare Borgia. In this prequel to the company's 2009 signature work based on The Prince, Machiavelli can't help but be impressed by the skills and gifts of "the Borgia Bull," even as he threatens to lay waste to Machiavelli's beloved Republic of Florence, and is left to decide whether he should remain loyal to his homeland or support the man who may be his ideal "Prince."

A Well Done Show in a perfect Venue
The thing the summary fails to let us know is that while this is not perfect Conan Doyle in origin it is in fact based on several Holmes stories and was developed during the lifetime and with the eventual approval of ACD. This matters because so much of the latter Sherlock Holmes theater/movies uses his characters but loses authenticity.The Broken Mirror is not the equivalent of reading a story but the integrity is there.
Jeff Garret is impressive as he shifts midstep or with a twist from Holmes to Moriarty to Mrs. Hudson to Watson and a half dozen other characters, back and forth in the perfect setting of a Drawing Room with a fireplace in the unique Berkeley Club, a place worth the trip on its own. This is a more conflicted and and troubled Sherlock than the unstoppable force in the books. He and the opponent play a charade and close match.
Not knowing the origins of the story I came with doubts of a Holmes derivative but what you get is the genuine article. Very worthwhile and handy to Telegraph Ave or Shattuck for dining.
