Hound of the Baskervilles"
Master sleuth Sherlock Holmes and trusty sidekick Dr. Watson will attempt to unlock the mystery of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" from July 22-August 22 at Central Square Theater in Cambridge. Thomas Derrah of the American Repertory Theater directs.
"The Hound of the Baskervilles" is Steven Canny and John Nicholson's over-the-top spoof of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel telling the tale of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a phantom hound.
Previously a hit in both London and Lenox (Shakespeare
& Company), the comedic retelling of the famed detective
story features Remo Airaldi, Bill Mootos and
Trent Mills taking on sixteen roles (male and female). The fast
paced send-up of the Victorian literary genre is liberally sprinkled with
gags and pratfalls.
Bill Mootos (as Dr. Watson) makes his Central Square Theater
debut with this production. Bill has worked with a number of Boston area
theaters, most recently with Wheelock Family Theatre
in "A Tale of Two Cities." He has appeared
in countless area productions over the past decade, at the Huntington
Theatre Company, The Publick Theatre, Metropolitan Playhouse of NYC, Manhattan
Theatre Source, North Shore Music Theatre, the Vineyard Playhouse, Gloucester
Stage Company, The Lyric Stage Company of Boston, Merrimack Repertory
Theatre, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre, Foothills Theatre, Boston
Theatre Works, SpeakEasy Stage Company, and many others. Bill’s
film credits include "The Company Men," "Locked
In," "Hard Luck," and "Easy Listening,"
