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

My wife liked it better than I did (I would give it three stars, for her four stars). Regardless, the RCS is an always entertaining/spirited group of performers. We had previously seen All The Great Books which was outstanding. Can't go wrong with an evening of entertainment with these jokers!! They cover so much ground it is dizzying and we liked the occasional foray into sports history. Since the review options don't allow for halves, as a couple, we'd give it 3 1/2 stars. Would see them again in their other efforts in a heartbeat.

The Complete World of Sports (abridged)
by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor
Just in time for Father's Day comes The Complete World of Sports (abridged). Is bowling really a sport? What about poker or competitive eating? Who invented curling and synchronized swimming and why in the world are they in the Olympics? From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, the lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in a tour-de-farce of physical theatre.
