While we were in Boston visiting Katie (and seeing Hamilton) we also attended the Huntington Theatre Company’s play by Charles Marowitz, Sherlock’s Last Case. Maria Aitken directs a clever story where Sherlock is threatened by the son of Professor Moriarity. The staging alternates between Baker Street and a spooky cave. I enjoyed Rufus Collins as an arrogant Sherlock Holmes and Mark Zeisler as a frustrated Doctor Watson. Jane Ridley is a flighty Mrs. Hudson. Antoinette Robinson surprises as Liza Moriarity. And Malcolm Ingram presents a solid Inspector Lestrade. If you’re in the mood for a twisty Sherlock play, I recommend Sherlock’s Last Case. GRADE: B+

    sounds entertaining. I’ve seen several two people shows and this sounds similar, but with a bigger cast.

    my next play is either a world premiere of Diana (based on HRH Princess of Wales) or a Hershey Felder one. If you haven’t seen Felder, I recommend him

    Sounds interesting. I like plays like this.

    When I had season tickets to South Coast Repertory in SoCal, I saw some plays by Tom Stoppard, including “The Real Inspector Hound” and “Jumpers”, which were very good.
