I had the great pleasure of seeing Centerstage’s production of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” this weekend. It’s a spooky whodunit tale about everyone’s favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes.
The actors really shined in this production. I applaud Center Stage for casting diverse actors in what is traditionally a monochrome production. I’ve endured many a terrible fake British accent over the years in enjoying live theatre, but this troupe clearly did their research in appropriate regional and class-based accents. There were many standout performances, but, in particular, I found Craig Rock’s portrayal of Sir Charles Baskerville to be very entertaining.
I’d say that Center Stage’s production of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” is easily more fun to watch than anything currently on Netflix, so tear yourself away from your flatscreen for one night and enjoy acting in its original form: on stage.
