The Return of Sherlock Holmes

Requiem Holmes LogoI’ve been so busy so far this year that I’m just now trying to catch up with some posts.  Back in 2015, I performed the role of the world’s greatest detective in a staged reading of Greg Oliver Bodine’s new play, A Requiem for Sherlock Holmes, which combines two famous Conan Doyle short stories into a very satisfying Sherlockian evening of theatre.

This past January 6th, on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 126th birthday, Greg asked me to don the role of Sherlock again, this time for a staged reading at the Players Theatre, nimbly directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby.  We had a great audience, and a great time.

After the show, we were given a private tour of The Players, including Edwin Booth’s private rooms.  Remarkable and fascinating.

Here’s hoping I have the opportunity to bring Greg’s play and my Sherlock to a theatre for a full production sometime soon!
