Great adaptation for the stage. Acting was great. The way they went back and forth with the story from past to present was nearly seamless.

One of the best shows I've seen this year. If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes or have always been meaning to delve into the stories, this performance is a must-see. The acting was absolutely fantastic. The set very well done with limited budget...continued

Well done. Good script kept me in suspense to the end. Good acting. Nice little theater. On the down side there is one center aisle and steep stairs with no railings. Get there early or you may find yourself seated at the other side of the theater...continued

This was cleverly done on a small stage. The acting was superb - especially Brian Pastor whom we have seen several times at CityLit theater.

Excellent acting in an adaptation of an off-beat Sherlock Holmes story. The actors were very believable in their roles, especially Holmes and Watson. The production was well paced, and dispensing with an intermission was a wise choice. An...continued

As a Sherlockian I found it fun. Nick Lake as Sherlock was fun. The game's afoot!

The theater was nice, albeit a little short on legroom. The acting was good and the play was well staged and produced. Definitely worth seeing.

Loved the intimacy of the small theater. The acting was amazing and even though the set was small and simple, your imagination could see everything that the actors were trying to portray. The story was wonderful and my husband and I left there...continued

ALL the players played their parts very well. VERY much worth seeing this show - and, as this was the first time we'd seen this troop, we'd like to come back and see them all again in different play. Nice night out, with the Golden Apple...continued

Excellent show!! The actors did a phenomenal job, and the story was very entertaining--a mix of humor and mystery, as expected with any good Sherlock story, which turns into an twist that you would never predict. The theater is soooo small...not...continued

Excellent play. I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan (read every story), and this play truly did Sir Authur Conan Doyle justice. The actors all did a great job portraying these classic characters, and the small theater did not feel small, as they...continued
