Based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” this “murderously funny adventure” features Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and three actors playing more than 30 characters while trying to save their client whose predecessor has been killed by who knows what, but is thought to be a giant hound living on the moors of England. The show is replete with “clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit.”
