My spouse would give it 5 stars, but he had had a nap the day we went, and was able to keep track of it all much better than I apparently could! It is a delightful mystery/whodunit tale from a contemporary of Dickens. There are many characters in the story, so be on your toes and wide-awake when you go! The acting is great, costumes are wonderful--my only problem was with the scenery. We went on a preview night and apparently, as it was told to us by a staffer, it wasn't completed, due in part to the blizzard we had earlier that week. It was a bit difficult to figure out where each scene was taking place. But regardless, it was quite fun. If you like Agatha Christie-type mysteries, you'll love this one!
A world premiere based on the classic mystery by Wilkie Collins
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Paul S. Holmquist
The Moonstone, an Indian diamond steeped in a history of violence and mysticism, is stolen from Rachel Verinder’s sitting room, and no one in her household is above suspicion. Join an unforgettable collection of liars, lovers, addicts and outcasts as they struggle to uncover the truth and reclaim the stone before its curse destroys them all. This thrilling mystery, regarded as the first detective novel in the English language, is re-imagined by the award-winning adaptor and director of The Island of Dr. Moreau and Neverwhere.
