2’s Review: Holmes & Watson
Our critic thoroughly enjoyed a preview performance of “Holmes & Watson” at the Gulfshore Playhouse in downtown Naples.
It’s written with great charm and understanding by Jeffrey Hatcher, who earlier wrote a number of Holmes plays and the screenplay for the 2015 film, Mr. Holmes, starring Ian McKellen.
What a joy to see everything come together in the most professional way: an incredible story, fine acting by a cast that included Jeffrey Binder, John Glowacki, Gregory Johnstone, Christopher Kelly, Arthur Lazalde, Joanne Strapp and David Whalen; terrific direction by Andrew Paul, in a theater built for such an intimate production. The scenery, by the way, by Robert Koharchik, is remarkable. Keep your eye peeled for pistol shots and plenty of sliding doors and deception.
