London, 1890’s. The world’s most notorious detective and his new assistant are challenged by a string of baffling crimes. Not only do they solve, sleuth, and scrutinize- but they also sing! Fast-paced, outrageous, and zany, but still a loving homage to the original Arthur Conan Doyle tales, this world premiere musical will thrill theatre-lovers and Sherlock buffs alike. A laugh out loud good time!

What The Critics Are Saying

  • It’s a delightful ensemble, excellently directed by Ellenstein. The cast of nine is superb, and their quick changes of character and costume make it appear that there are scores more. Just sit back and enjoy it all gloriously unspooling in front of you. This show has legs; I predict that it’ll be moving on and moving up soon. Don’t miss it while it’s offering San Diego a first look.

    Pat Launer, Times of San Diego

  • A campy, comical tale – complete with red herrings, disguises, accents, stolen jewels, cups of tea and a growing body count – told through nearly two dozen songs by nine actors, many portraying multiple characters.

    Lynne Friedmann, CultureVulture

  • What do you get when you combine the brilliance of actor/director/lyricist/playwright, Omri Schein with the actor/artistic director/heart of North Coast Repertory Theatre, David Ellenstein, with the “incredibly talented and joyously spirited cast” of The Remarkable Mister Holmes? A witty, delightful musical that is most assuredly Broadway-bound following this world premiere. North Coast Rep has gifted us with this spectacular summer sensation. Don’t allow yourself to be clueless a moment longer. Come see if you can sniff out the supervillain in this whimsical whodunnit.

    Eva Trieger, Jewish World

  • It is surely a sign of Sherlock Holmes’ greatness as a character that he can both flourish and entertain  in modernized TV adaptations, big-budget action adventures, and here, in a comic musical that still manages to convey his genius amid the broad jokes and clever songs.

    Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader

  • There are red herrings, surprises and many games afoot. Just sit back and enjoy all the comedic talent onstage. That’s enough to leave a glow in Sherlock Holmes’ discerning eyes.

    David Coddon, The San Diego Union-Tribune

  • An outrageous encounter of the beloved Sherlock singing, dancing, and deducting, his way into our hearts.

    LA Splash Magazine

  • This authentic new work is fresh and brilliantly funny.
