"The story is retold simply but effectively, with a fine balance between wit and suspense. Evan Jackson’s elegant, well-paced production for Idle Muse Theatre brings out the best in the material. His casting is strong—Joel Thompson and Nathan Pease in particular have considerable chemistry as Holmes and Watson"
-Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
"The best part of this show is the chemistry between Thompson and Pease. Thompson perfectly embodies Sherlock. Pease brings the humanity and the humor to this partnership. Whereas Thompson wants to solve the puzzle, a passionate Pease wants to protect Hutt. Their chemistry works. We sense these gents have history. Their genuine enjoyment of each other’s company is apparent...This is a talented crew! And Director Evan Jackson keeps the mystery unfolding with sophistication and clever techniques... An enjoyable evening of intellectual stimulation."
-Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh
“This new adaptation by Althos Low, married to strong performances, strikes a satisfying balance between the personal and the political… Joel Thompson and Nathan Pease as Holmes and Watson, respectively, make not only the individual roles wholly their own, but embrace the adaptation's unique take on their relationship… The liberties that the adapters take with the story rest on the actor's capable shoulders and what's been added, what's been removed and what's been transformed in this telling are not just believable, the story and the characters are enriched by it.”
-Christine Malcom, Edge Media Network
"Nathan Pease is terrific as Watson. An amazingly clear presentation. We are hooked and remain so as this fast-paced show unfolds smoothly without missing any one of Doyle’s intricate twists. Besides the wonderful ensemble work, the atmosphere of the gloomy bog and moor of the Devonshire countryside was enhanced by Robert P. Llyod’s sound design. another stage worthy production by Idle Muse under the fine direction by Evan Jackson. Come see a fun mystery"
