The REP did an amazing job with this. I particularly enjoyed the sets which had great artistic and sensory appeal. As is usual at the REP, the acting was wonderful. I felt myself to be out on the moor in this very different time period.

What a fun show! With a somewhat minimalist set I was nevertheless drawn into Victorian England. Holmes at his best... mystery, intrigue, comedy, disguises, fog... Good show? Elementary...

Far surpassed my expectations ... bordering on something I would see on Broadway.

Enjoyed the acting tremendously though it became necessary to eradicate all the many previous images I had of S. Holmes. Not sure the actor was ideal for that part though he is an excellent actor. All of the cast, the settings, the subtle use of...continued

Not being a Sherlock Holmes reader I was surprised at all the right places. The friends I went with are all big Sherlock fans and they enjoyed it tremendously. They liked the adaptation even though it had some new twists. Thought the scenery,...continued

I had a really great time at this show. I haven't read any of the Sherlock Holmes books so this was new to me, but after seeing this show, I think I need to pickup and read the further adventures of Holmes and Watson now. The play was wonderful...continued

President Obama came to Seattle and the police had blocked off so many critical roads that it took us a half hour to drive a half block on Interstate I-5. We could not make it and so I called about 20 minutes before show time to see if I could...continued

When we saw the length of this show we thought it was going to seem way too long, but it was so engaging and entertaining that the time just flew by. Excellent staging and no weak links in the acting whatsoever. We are incredibly impressed that...

Solid production with wonderful stage effects and set design, humor amid the drama. Holmes fans won't be disappointed. Good show for whole family, if the kids are, say, middle school age or older, there are some frightening bits for younger...continued

The use of multi-media was great. At almost 3 hours, the play was a little long, although the acting was fantastic. Sherlock Holmes came off as pompous and unlikable, although I don't think that can be changed, as that's how he is written.
