In SHERLOCK SOLO: An Original Presentation by the Master Detective, without the services of his renowned sidekick and narrator Dr. Watson, the internationally illustrious detective Sherlock Holmes steps out of retirement to relay a mystery that forced even him to leave a few loose ends untied. Victor L. Cahn commands the stage easily as Holmes and immediately admits that he is not one of the many who consider modesty a virtue. With droll humor and unabashed ego, he tells of his progressive career development into a profession where his name became synonymous with “detectiving.” On a set enshrouded in white, he paces, plays the violin, relaxes in a chair, and peers out the window as he gently pokes fun at anyone who dared to question his judgment or abilities. He utilizes a variety of dialects and impersonations while speaking. And when he begins to tell of the mysterious lady who left him baffled, he injects his story telling with excitement and enthusiasm. The talents of Cahn are many, and the direction of Eric Parness keeps the pace of SHERLOCK SOLO moderate. The narration may be a bit indulgent, but would one expect any less of the self-proclaimed Master Detective?
