The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
One of the most indelible characters in the literary canon, Holmes and his methods have fascinated readers for well over a century, spawning numerous adaptations and allowing multiple actors to create their own iconic takes on the characters. Noveltease Theatre's upcoming production plays with this legacy of adaptation by featuring three different takes on Holmes. The Noveltease Core Company has devised a trio of adventures from the Holmes canon that will feature a different actor in the title role for each story. Additionally, each featured story is adapted, choreographed, and directed by different Core Company members to further emphasize how readers and creators have interpreted Holmes throughout his long literary life.
At the heart of this nesting trio of mysteries is what happens when the worlds most perfect reasoning machine is tested -- or bested. Although Holmes approaches every problem with keen observation and a process of deduction, there are times where passions prevail. Through the art of literary burlesque, Noveltease dances the dialectic between reason and passion to explore Holmes humanity.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will be performed on July 11 & 12 at The Auditorium at U-Heights, where Noveltease is a resident company in the U-Heights Theatre Alliance. The show features Noveltease Core Company members Onyx Asili, Jesse Belle-Jones, Fosse Jack, Sailor St. Claire, and Trixie Paprika, along with guest artists Tootsie Spangles and Scarlett Folds.
