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
Reviews & Ratings
Coronado Playhouse is excited to announce they have acquired the rights to the recently released 2006 Broadway musical The Drowsy Chaperone. Winner of 5 Tony Awards and 7 Drama Desk awards including “Outstanding Musical.” This hilarious show-within-a-show begins when a die-hard musical comedy fan dusts off his favorite cast album, a 1928 smash hit called The Drowsy Chaperone. The album magically bursts to life and the audience is instantly immersed in the glamorous, comical tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day. One of the wittiest, craziest shows ever to hit Broadway. You’ll want to see the show critics announced as “Irresistible! A witty, winning, refreshing cocktail of a show” and “delightful and sparkling entertainment!”
