Houston, TX  77092
Watson loses a body and Holmes sleuths to save the day in Theatre Suburbia’s Sherlock Holmes: John Watson’s Body, a traditional Baker Street tale with a Weekend at Bernie’s twist regarding the titular cadaver. Arnold Richie, who plays the great detective, says, “Watson’s a little bit embarrassed” and Sherlock is, well, Sherlock. “He’s very pompous. He’s quite sure of himself. He has very few social skills.” Richie’s Holmes is more Rathbone than Cumberbatch — for you traditional Sherlockians out there — and though C.P. Stancich’s mystery is fairly new (premiering in 2012), Richie says “it’s got the right British-type humor, and it’s got the intellectual characteristic to it, and that’s what true Sherlock fans really want to see — they want to be able to try to figure it out for themselves.”

8:30 p.m. Friday. Continuing 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. March 12 and 19. February 24 through March 25. 4106 Way Out West. For information, call 713-682-3525 or visit $13 to $16.

[Organizer's Description:]

The great detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his loyal sidekick, John Watson, are at odds. While Dr. Watson has gone to investigate the possible theft of a priceless set of emeralds at the home of Lord and Lady Delton, Holmes remains at Baker Street entertaining his former housemate, the adventurer Oscar Dove. Holmes believes his friend to be on a fool’s errand, but when Watson reports finding and then losing a body, Watson, Holmes, and Dove are drawn into a web of murder, larceny and intrigue. The body turns out to be surprisingly agile, and the suspects range from dubious aristocrats, to doubtful servants, to notorious members of the criminal class.
