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 were enjoyable, but there REALLY needs to be a disclaimer on the venue (Coronado Play house). I may have been the only person who didn't know, but this theater is setup like dinner theater with tables and such.
**Very awkward on a date or if you wanted some semblance of privacy. Also since this wasn't a "true" theater, there are several HORRID seats since the stage is only 3 feet high and the tables and seats are on the level with no slope. You are pretty much screwed unless you have a center middle table and no one is sitting in the front row tables immediately in front of you.

What would you do for the role of a lifetime? In the case of Tina Denmark, an adorable 8-year-old with a consuming drive for stardom, the real question is: “What wouldn’t you do?” Ambition runs amok in Ruthless! The Musical. This outrageous musical hit is a hysterical send up of the entertainment business. You’ll laugh, cry and be on the edge of your seat from the suspenseful start to a truly unforgettable finish.
