ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays. There was actually a real-life William Gillete who the story is loosely based on.
The show opens tomorrow, December 4th, at the Adobe Theater. It will be on stage through December 20. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. You can find tickets at www.adobetheater.org.
