Review from LA Theater Lover

We didn't get this show. It was way too long. It gets 2 stars for the great costumes and acting.

Small theater, limited budget, brilliant acting, fun absorbing story, creative staging- all a terrific experience

Wonderful new Sherlock Holmes spoof with some Twilight Zone twists.

Review from MrsJSR

Some unique direction and choreography may make it worth seeing for some, but the storyline was dry and uninteresting, in my opinion and the ending nonsensical. However, the actor who played Watson's love-interest was especially good and worth...continued

Pretty Good

Review from Richard

I would have given this 4 or even 5 stars because the actors were so good, and the script was often very clever and very funny, but I so hated the ending that I only gave it 3 stars. I confess to being very confused when I left the theater as to...continued

Good acting; good staging; liked it till the end - then I wished I had Cliff notes to decipher ending.

I could not follow this play either. The stars are for the great acting and the kindness of the management to help me with seating. I am disabled.

Last second decision to go and was well worth it. Ending wasn't quite what we expected, but "so what?"

Review from John Deerhake

Has a lot of the same things I loved about the first Watson: great acting and costumes, very interesting use of a minimalist stage/props, and a lot of fun shenanigans. This one lost me a little with the story line though - it felt like they were...continued

Review from mprove

The theater is fantastic and several of the performances were excellent (especially Graham Skipper as Sigmund Freud). The themes were intriguing, but the final act was extremely unsatisfying.

Review from Jessica

Overall, well acted and creatively staged. Enjoyed the first act, but by Act 2, the play took a more serious and introspective turn. The main plot point was left unresolved, and I left feeling unsatisfied and confused.

Review from Ben Martin

The play is over-written and unfocussed. It has a few funny lines but, with the exception of Watson, no characters with whom the audience can connect. The 2nd act veers sharply away from the 1st, leaving the major plot question unanswered. In...continued

Review from Sherry Netherland

Hidden away on Heliotrope in Hollywood, the Sacred Fools theatre is a super find. This clever and original work (directed by the author) was a winner on all levels. The acting, direction, writing, set design all top notch. Only three more...continued

Review from Randy Byle

I enjoyed this production, especially the scenes with "Sigmund Freud" - his lines and performance made me laugh out loud. The staging with minimal props was refreshing. All of the acting was very good.

Jaime Robledo is back with more Watson & co. action packed fun times! I enjoyed the latest from Sacred Fools theater & Mr. Robledo. He is known as the 'poor man's Julie T." and it really makes for a fun time in Hollywood! I say, make the trip...continued

Review from jjsemp

The play has no real plot and is overwritten and self-indulgent. The actors do a fine job milking the paper-thin material for all it's worth, and the director has genuine moments of cleverness. Art direction is fine. But the problem is all in the...continued

Amazing show and super talented cast! Loved the humour and everything about it! I fell in love with Sherlock Holmes- what a great character:) I forgot how great plays could be when it is done right. Perfection!!
