This co-production between The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater transports you to ancient Persia, where King Shahryar, after being driven mad by his first wife's infidelity, brands all women unfaithful. He takes a new bride every night and has each one executed the following day -- until he meets Shahrazad, who enchants him with magical tales spanning the globe, winning his love and respect in the process. Based on the collection of folk tales One Thousand and One Nights and adapted by Dominic Cooke, Arabian Nights is rich with suspense, romance and hilarity for all ages. Daniel Gidron directs.

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 rolled into one.. (side note: I loved the actor who played Holmes.. and err.. several other characters)

Three actors, sixteen roles: The Hound is back!
Remo Airaldi, Bill Mootos and Trent Mills return in our Summer 2010 hit, The Hound of the Baskervilles. If you missed it then, here’s your second chance. Steven Canny and John Nicholson’s fast-paced send-up of the classic Sherlock Holmes novel teems with physical humor and visual gags.
