I went to this play because my wife if a Holmes buff. We thoroughly enjoyed this high-quality production. Casting, stagecraft, seating - all excellent! It was Friday night and I was tired after a hectic week and had a wonderful time. The director's prologue enhanced the experience and is worth coming early for. Thanks for a nice surprise and a great night at the theater.

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.
