Sherlock Holmes and the Sign of the Four
April 11 - May 26$12 – $36
Running from April 11th to May 26th, Sherlock Holmes & the Sign of the Four brings Holmes and Watson back to the Cabaret for an adventure that takes the audience from a prison in India to 221B Baker Street and on to the Thames for an onstage boat chase.
A World Premiere
The show is a world premiere adaptation of one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous novels, The Sign of the Four, told in the small cast, quick change comedic style of recent theatrical hits like The 39 Steps and Baskerville. “The challenge of creating a show like this is there are just so many moving parts. With so few actors to inhabit the world, care has to be taken to make sure each actor has enough time to change for the next bit and in some cases just to get a breath before they come on for the next scene. Also the balance between maintaining the integrity of Sir Conan Doyle’s mystery while adding these comedic touches can be a delicate balancing act,“ says director/adapter Rick Robinson. “The exhilarating thing for an audience coming to see a world premiere is when the lights come up on opening night, they’re going to experience something completely new, something no one has ever seen before.”
Matt Koenig and Galen Schloming return to the Cabaret as Holmes and Watson, having previously played those roles in 2017’s Baskerville. They are joined by Cabaret favorites Galloway Stevens (Cabaret, Chicago, Rocky Horror, Million Dollar Quartet) and Stephen Kline (Picasso, Bat Boy, The 39 Steps, Baskerville), as well as Cabaret newcomer Aryana Sedarati.
Sherlock Holmes & the Sign of the Four features onstage violence, and talk of drug use and murder. There is no profanity or nudity. Were it a move, it would be rated PG, bordering on PG-13.
