Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four

By the Book Productions—Planetarium

Fast-paced (lightning fast!) and energetic, this role-swapping depiction of a mystery rolls through the hour without a chance to take a breath. The solid actors do a great job of telling a complicated story in a short timeframe.

Complicated and fast are the key words here—as a viewer, you cannot afford to miss any part of the dialogue or you miss a huge chunk of the plot. As exhausting as it must be for the actors, it’s equally demanding on the viewer to maintain full attention for the entire hour. If you can though, you’re rewarded with an entertaining and amusing account of the world’s most famous sleuth.
