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

The performances by the main characters was wonderful, comparable to the Hollywood film production of "Inherit the Wind". The sets are a bit underwhelming, though. However, I would definitely recommend this production as one not to be missed. A memorable production!
Inspired by the historic 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial”, this riveting courtroom drama presents the famous Clarence Darrow/William Jennings Bryan debate of the teaching of evolution versus creationism.
