Mister Sherlock Holmes
Mister Sherlock Holmes
SYNOPSIS: It is London in the late Victorian era, and someone is busting busts. Busts of Napoleon. The likely culprit is none other than London's Napoleon of crime, Professor Moriarty. And if Moriarty is involved, Sherlock Holmes is certain to be on the case. And if Holmes is there, his equally famous chronicler, Doctor Watson, must be there as well. Add 221B Baker Street housekeeper Mrs. Hudson, Abigail Martin, Moriarty's flamboyant cousin from Chicago, and the loyal and ebullient Baker Street Irregulars and you have a tuneful yet engrossing musical mystery. Next stop, London! Columbus Dispatch Theatre Critic Michael Grossberg's review headline reads "No mystery about Holmes' - it's (a) fine musical."
