What was with the singing? There was singing in the play, which didn't have anything to do with the storyline, and the storyline was silly. Good acting in a silly/dumb play.

What a wonderful play. One of the best Sunday afternoons I've had in a long time. Kevin Stidham who played Sherlock Holmes gives a standout performance (he was so fun to watch and had the audience applauding even before the intermission) but...continued

What an amazing and witty show! Gus Kreiger wrote and directed a fantastic show that will have you laughing and sitting on the edge of your seat for the whole 2 hrs. And the words he wrote were brought to life by a perfectly cast ensemble. I would...continued

This play is a weird conglomeration of elements from Sherlock Holmes and Lewis Carroll. It does not work at all. I almost left after the first half but gave it a second chance, and the second half was even worse. Avoid at all costs.
