HOLMES AND WATSON  Alley Theatre

     By Jeffrey Hatcher

"Is it possible to tell yet another story, one that’s both true to the spirit of Conan Doyle and decidedly new and inventive? After seeing Jeffrey Hatcher’s Holmes and Watson, now playing at the Alley, the answer is a resounding yes."

                                         -- Houston Press

"Mark Shanahan was a natural choice to direct after helming the Alley Theatre’s production of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps last summer, which had a similar vibe (and was a fantastic show). Holmes and Watson moves at a fast pace and is a breezy...The theatre was full, the show was fun, and the crowd was into it — there was a standing ovation.

                                            -- The Nerdlocker

"The play’s finale is delightful and surprising. But the true winner of the night? The wily mastermind of narrative sleight-of-hand himself, Sherlock Holmes!"            

                                          -- Houston Chronicle

"Shanahan’s production of “Holmes and Watson” is tightly wound with exquisite comedic timing that is typical of the Sherlock Holmes realm."

                                  -- The Signal

"In only 90 minutes, Hatcher, director Shanahan, and the cast create enough quick plot turns that audiences members might find themselves dizzy at the final reveals.
