Dallas Theater Center brings the world’s greatest detective to the stage in Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, written by Steven Dietz and directed by DTC Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty. Audiences will be thrilled by Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, which is based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Arthur Conan Doyle and opens in previews on April 25 with a Pay-What-You-Can performance on May 25 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. Tickets to Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure are on sale now at the DTC website and by phone at (214) 880-0202.
“I can’t think of a better place for Baker Street to be conjured than on the stage of the Dallas Theater Center,” said playwright Steven Dietz. “Long before he ever showed up in popular movies, Sherlock Holmes was brought to life onstage. And I think that’s where he belongs – live and in our midst – his mind ever at the ready, and his heart very much at risk.”
Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, winner of the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play, is a thrilling whodunit that puts Holmes and Watson on the trail of a blackmail case that leads the pair straight into the lair of arch-adversary, Professor Moriarty. Along the way, Holmes becomes enamored with the all-too-lovely Irene Adler, the famous opera singer who just happens to be at the center of the crime. This regional premiere is filled with intrigue, humor and surprise.
