Will Sherlock Holmes crack his own case? Our favorite quirky, Scrooge-infused inquisitor and his host of supernatural visitors return this holiday season with a remount of the wildly successful Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol, crafted by Seattle veteran playwright John Longenbaugh.
In this caper through time, Dr. Watson rallies to cheer Holmes into celebrating the holiday season but the unrepentant, ill-tempered detective resists until he is forced to deduce the facts and solve the most important mystery of his own life – past, present and future.
This production offers an opportunity to revisit the script, shift focus and go a little deeper into the overall theme of the universal spirit of the season with returning and new cast members. Michael Mendelson will reprise his role of Sherlock in this 2012 production; he is joined by new cast members Tim Blough as Dr. Watson, Jane Fellows as Mrs. Hudson and Melissa Whitney as Becky – full cast list below. The play premiered at Taproot Theatre Company in Seattle to standing room only houses for the 2010 holidays and had its second production as Artists Rep’s 2012 holiday show.
