Oregon Cabaret Brings Mystery and Adventures with Baskerville


 
Sherlock Holmes most famous case is coming to the Oregon Cabaret on September 14th, with the opening of the fall production, Baskerville, a Sherlock Holmes Mystery.
 
From the award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), comes a fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favorite detective. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of The Hound of the Baskervilles before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters.
 
“What’s fun about this show is you get one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries done in the same fast-paced, theatrical style of The 39 Steps,” says director Robinson. “Part of the pleasure in a show like this is watching the actors change so rapidly from one character to the next as Holmes and Watson meet potential suspects and allies.”
 
The Cast
 
Baskerville features returning Cabaret favorites Tony Carter, Galen Schloming, and Stephen Kline. Galen Schloming (‘S Wonderful, Double Trouble), plays Holmes’ friend and partner Dr. John Watson. Tony Carter (Rocky Horror, Pine Mountain Lodge) and Stephen Kline (Bat Boy, The 39 Steps) tackle over 25 characters in this madcap mystery. Baskerville also features two performers making their Cabaret debuts - Matt Koenig plays Sherlock Holmes and Mia Mekjian takes on almost every female character in the play.
