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

Found the play entertaining, actors were good, play a little long. Our first visit to Coronado Playhouse. The view from the rear seats are at the mercy of the people in the front seat. We were surprised for such a nice area that there were no section risers for the rear seat tables. Found the seats uncomfortable especially for almost three hours with intermission. Had a kink in my neck from trying to see between heads. We drove down from North County.
The Man Who Came to Dinner was made into a 1942 film starring Betty Davis.
