Houston's Classical Theatre Company has announced it is postponing The Speckled Band: An Adventure of Sherlock Holmes that was supposed to open next week.
According to a press release Monday, the problem involved "venue scheduling" which in the fine tradition of Arthur Conan Doyle, should be mysterious enough for everyone -- along with the notation that that "more information on th venue and specifics on the production will be forthcoming."
The new production dates are February 4-22.
