Suspense and laughter share the stage in this adaptation of the popular Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two Seattle theater vets bring their witty sensibility to this classic Victorian whodunit about an attempted murder tied to the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound. The famous detective and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson travel to the misty, moody moors of England's West Country where the Baskerville family patriarch has died under mysterious and chilling circumstances and his nephew and heir, Sir Henry, may be next. Is it the family curse or is it murder? Holmes is on the case! Learn More

Very enjoyable, with a something less than distinguished score. The book, which retains as much of Wilde as possible, is as funny as you'd expect if you're familiar with the source material. The score is pleasant enough, but very repetitive (with a second act that's almost entirely reprises). It became difficult to distinguish one song from another. The actors, however, were all absolutely delightful and really made the material shine. And the costumes were to die for.
