Review: Sherlock’s funny ‘Hound’ a howling LOL experience

“The hilarious, Monty Python-like take on the sleuth left audience members howling with laughter!”

“Does exactly what superior theatre should do!”

Sherlock Holmes has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, especially with Benedict Cumberbatch playing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth in the hit BBC television series.

Naples theater lovers who enjoy the more serious TV version of the Victorian-era detective will need to brace themselves for the latest Gulfshore Playhouse effort, “The Hound of the Baskervilles.”

The hilarious, Monty Python-like take on the sleuth left audience members howling with laughter Saturday night from the get-go when the three actors addressed them directly. Jeffrey Binder portrays an over-the-top Sherlock who sets out, along with sidekick Watson, played by James David Larson, to solve the mystery of a killer dog. The other actor in this hilarious triad, Phillip Taratula, plays Baskervilles and other characters (as they all do).
