The boys of Baker Street have their most "Wilde" adventure yet in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily, a new stage play from Katie Forgette (Assisted Living). History and fantasy mingle when Oscar Wilde brings his dear friend, the actress Lillie Langtry, to see detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson. Someone has stolen the highly intimate letters Lillie exchanged with the Prince of Wales, and now she is being blackmailed. Holmes takes the case, even doffing his deerstalker to disguise himself as a character from Wilde's upcoming play, The Importance of Being Forthright (working title). Meanwhile, Watson falls head-over-heels for Langtry as a wicked professor tries to disgrace the Crown. Doris Merten directs this Victorian romp at Theatre Suburbia. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "[The musical takes] American idealism, resentment and fear of being perpetually misunderstood - adds a ravenous sense of entitlement and mixes these ingredients together in one big, gawky, sexually charged package: America, the eternal teenager. And who better to lead this restless, appetite-driven creature than a red-blooded rock star?” --Ben Brantley, <em>The New York Times</em>
- "Insanely funny! <em>Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson</em> makes a bid for the smartest, sharpest new musical in years." --<em>Time Out</em>
- "Exhilarating and genuinely thought-provoking. <em>Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson</em> oozes political relevance." --<em>USA Today</em>
