The Crucifer of Blood
At the Alley Theatres The Crucifer of Blood, an ExxonMobil Summer Chills production, Holmes and his sidekick Watson are busy with a mysterious case involving a cursed treasure chest from exotic Victorian India. The story, adapted by Paul Giovanni from Arthur Conan Doyles The Sign of Four, is full of the creepiness those 19th-century types seem to have adored, such as an opium den, drug-laced tea, blood oaths and curses. The kind of spooky fog that looks hokey on TV will send a shiver up your spine in a darkened theater. 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Through August 16. 615 Texas. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit www.alleytheatre.org. $21 to $49.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: July 15. Continues through Aug. 16, 2009
