How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A singularly enjoyable and original experience from start to finish. The PMRP specializes in radio-style theater - performances done on stage with live foley (sound effects), as if you were watching a live studio performance on stage. It's an enjoyable, nostalgic trip to kinder, simpler times, and includes old style candies and sodas (think Cherry Mash and Sarsparilla). I was pleasantly surprised to receive one free concession item as a Red Velvet members! The play itself was incredibly well done - the adaptation by Jeremy Holstein perfectly encapsulated the feelings and plot of the original novel. The acting was superb, and the foley team was not only great at what they did, they were a lot of fun to watch. Costuming was light but got fun. This is a great show for the whole family, and is sure to please anyone who, like myself, has been swept up in the Sherlock Holmes fervor! As noted by a previous reviewer, parking can be tricky - be sure to arrive early to ensure you can find something. There is a lot off of the Square that I would highly recommend.
