Quotes & Highlights

“Writer-director Jaime Robledo’s Watson and the Dark Art of Harry Houdini, the second installment in his Watson series … maintains his inventive staging and bizarre humor, sending his beloved characters on an ultimately darker, more spiritual journey.” --LA Weekly
“Sacred Fools’ production of Watson and the Dark Art of Harry Houdini is one of those productions that is littered throughout with little surprises and hidden gems that render it impossible to talk about without revealing something to the reader. Trust me when I say that you want to discover all of those things for yourself. All you need to know going in, is that this is the best piece of theatre I have seen all year.” —Culver City News
