Great performance, of course the script was very good, but the actors were excellent. This was the first time we attended a performance in Sacramento and we were absolutely delighted.

Description

Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure

by Steven Dietz

Based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Arthur Conan Doyle

Directed by Michael Laun

Directed by Michael Laun, who recently directed the hilarious box office hit The Musical of Musicals (the Musical!), this production promises intrigue, adventure and even romance, not to mention one of the most iconic literary figures of all time. The play pulls fascinating characters and plot twists from two original stories: A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem, and underscores the great friendship between the brilliant, if enigmatic Holmes (William Elsman) and his loyal, if doddering physician friend Dr. Watson (Michael RJ Campbell). Also starring Troy Thomas as Sherlock’s nemesis Professor Moriarty and STC’s own Michele Hillen as siren Irene Adler. “The game’s afoot!” and there is a new twist at every turn.
