Baker Street: The Sherlock Holmes Musical

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Baker Street: The Sherlock Holmes Musical (2016)

Baker Street: The Sherlock Holmes Musical is an American musical play written by Jerome Coopersmith and directed by Cindy Goldfield, performed by 42nd Street Moon company at the Eureka Theatre (San Francisco, USA) from 2 to 20 november 2016, starring Michael Monagle as Sherlock Holmes and Dan Seda as Dr. Watson. 2h15 (including intermission).

Loosely based on Arthur Conan Doyle's short story A Scandal in Bohemia, the show is set in and around London in 1897, the year in which England celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of the reign of Queen Victoria (an event marked by an elaborate royal procession depicted by Bil Baird's marionettes). In the musical Irene Adler becomes an associate of Sherlock Holmes rather than his opponent, thus allowing an element of romance between the two.
