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 show was exactly what we expected. Most of the cast did a great job with few flubbed lines. We had two teenage boys with us and they enjoyed the show as much as the senior citizens in the audience. The venue is intimate with table seating. Although we were in the back, we heard everything. A nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
