ep69BSBs Lyndsay and Ashley chat on the phone with legendary playwright Ken Ludwig about the hilariously ridiculous and exhilarating Baskerville, currently playing in Philadelphia at the Suzanne Roberts Theater.

From how the show came to be to magnetic flowers shooting down from the ceiling to why having a younger Holmes & Watson is the cool thing to do, Ken brings us into his delightful world. Ken Ludwig has had 6 shows on Broadway and 7 in London’s West End, and his plays and musicals have been performed in more than 30 countries in over 20 languages. This includes The Game’s Afoot about William Gillette and his newest romp, Baskerville.

You can find out more about Ken and his work at his website, www.kenludwig.com, as well as follow him on twitter @ken_ludwig.

Get your deerstalker cap on—the play’s afoot! From the award-winning mastermind of mayhem, Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), comes a fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Book Review: Imogene and the Case of the Missing Pearls

Reviewed by Amy Children’s literature is a far trickier genre than it appears to be. As CS Lewis famously asserted, a book isn’t worth a child’s time if it isn’t worth an adult’s time. Elizabeth Varadan has crafted a story that is certainly aimed at, and appropriate for, children, but I found myself getting pulled… Read More »
