Greetings,




Ken Ludwig’s “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” was not what I expected - and I mean that in the best way possible. Directed by Scott Nolte, the show was superbly acted and incredibly funny. Yes, funny.




Michael Patten as Sherlock Holmes and Reginald Andre’ Jackson as Doctor Watson were the main characters. However, the other three performers - Nick Watson, Elizabeth Keck, and Eric Hampton played the other thirty plus roles during the show. 



 


The show played up to the fact that three actors were portraying so many different roles - with absolutely hilarious results.




Michael Patten as Sherlock Holmes was spot on - extremely believable in the role with perfect comedic timing. Reginald Andre’ Jackson as Doctor Watson also performed well with the right mix of dramatic turn and physical comedy.




Many in attendance at the packed opening night were howling with delight as the story unfolded. The five actors had worked out their timing well and it had to be so considering the numerous changes that took place during the performance. 




 


Nick Watson, Elizabeth Keck, and Eric Hampton must of had a ball portraying so many different roles. As actors they got to change accents, gender, and costumes, among other things.




As the story progressed I literally laughed out loud. There were some in attendance who’s sense of humor may not be a good match for this show but overall I believe most had a great time. 




 


If you’re expecting a serious, dramatic, “who done it’ - don’t. “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” weaves a great tale while incorporating 4th wall humor from beginning to end.




I enjoyed it so much I want to see it again!
