"Baskerville is a madcap sendup of what you might hold dear about that Doyle classic, done up in the style of The 39 Steps." - DC Theatre Scene

"The joy in watching [the] witty new play Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is not in solving the crime but in the plethora of wildly imaginative characters you meet along the way. By dispensing with British formality, Ken Ludwig has given us a play that is ingeniously funny and will keep you guessing until the curtain call." - Broadway World

"Written by Tony-winning playwright Ken Ludwig, the new play turns one of Holmes’ most famous mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles, on its head. Instead of a heady whodunit, this production is a fast-paced comedy." - Washington City Paper

"With this Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, the chase is on and with much joy...What there is new is a freshness to this particular Holmesian world. There is also plenty of theatrical inventiveness conjured by Director Amanda Dehnert from playwright Ludwig’s script." - DC Metro Theatre Arts
