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 production was very good and thoroughly entertaining. Sticking true to the magic of the original Wizard of Oz, this show was dramatic, funny, magical and very creative. The actress who plays Dorothy really embraced the character and did a believable tribute to Judy Garland. I also enjoyed the actor who played the Cowardly Lion. He was fabulous! The seating is not theatre seating, it's done by assigned tables which makes for limited viewing if you're in the back. All in all a very delightful event and well worth the time and money.
Also... the theatre is right on the Coronado bay and a stone's throw away from the Hotel Del, so it's easy to make an eveniong or afternoon out of the event.
Bring the whole family to this rousing stage production of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion on their journey to the Emerald City to see the Wizard. But beware the Wicked Witch of the West. And ride a twister over the rainbow into the magical land of Oz.
