The game is afoot once again for master detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson, with the added perk of steampunk-style design on display in the innovative sets and costumes. As for the story itself, the intrepid investigating duo are drawn into a case of blackmail, with a fetching opera singer at its center. And after many a diabolical twist and even a romantic turn, it all leads to a long-awaited final showdown with Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty. Adapted by Steven Dietz in 2006, this entertaining adventure pulls from an 1899 play by William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America. The Coronado Playhouse production plays on the steampunk aesthetic, which references Victorian England and its antiquated mechanics in new art and design. Learn More
It all started when an unhappy housewife meets a shoe salesman and it was love at first shoe-fitting. The only thing standing in the way is the doting, halfwit husband. What to do? Kill him. What was supposed to be a simple fool proof murder turns into a hilarious fiasco, when the eccentric Spanish-speaking maid, arrives on the wrong day and she too falls for the shoe salesman. The repeated, foiled murder attempts get funnier and funnier as the lovers try to finish the job they started- Resulting in this wacky tale of love, murder, and…shoes!
