Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Goose Recommended The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 4 2015

Victorian supersleuth Sherlock Holmes uncovers a case of fowl play in this family-friendly show, which has been substantially revised—and improved—since its debut in 2012. Based on Arthur Conan Doyle's 1892 tale "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," it chronicles the efforts of Holmes (Graham Emmons) and his sidekick Dr. Watson (Damian Conrad) to deduce how a fabulous stolen diamond ended up in the gullet of someone's Christmas dinner. Director Michael Menendian (who cowrote the script with John Weagly) transforms the mystery story into a festive holiday entertainment, perfect for family groups, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor, comical sound effects, and jovial musical numbers, including a Christmas carol audience sing-along. —Albert Williams
