Suspense and laughter share the stage in this adaptation of the popular Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two British 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

I had just watched the original documentary the week prior, so it was fresh in my mind when I saw the musical. I found it interesting how they had written the first act based on memories of the two women and then really enjoyed how they interpreted the second act very closely to the actual documentary film. TheatreWorks, as always, puts on a spectacular and professional production. But I did find I had some hearing difficulties by sitting in the balcony. Would have liked to sit closer.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright chronicles the journey of Jackie Kennedy’s notorious relatives, Edith and Edie Bouvier Beale, from giddy fortune in the 1940s to seclusion in the 1970s. Grey Gardens is a bittersweet saga of roads not taken and dreams left unfulfilled.
