Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

The hunting and haunting of the heir to the Baskerville fortune proves the most puzzling—and dangerous!—case in the illustrious careers of Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson. Cleveland favorite Ken Ludwig is back with his madcap adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic mystery, transforming The Hound of the Baskervilles into an all-out comedic theatrical adventure.
