Review: The Real Inspector Hound

9/08/2010 12:05:00 AM
As I mentioned earlier, DanDan headed over to to check out The Real Inspector Hound this past weekend (here) and he said quite enjoyed it.  Here's what he had to say:

Since I live around the corner from Tremont, I've walked by posters for the shows at the Boston Center for the Arts many times. But as a Sherlock Holmes fan, when I saw signs for The Real Inspector Hound, performing from September 2nd through the 25th, I definitely wanted to stop by. This satirical murder mystery tears down the walls between the audience and the actors (which this production further accomplishes by giving some of the suspects in the mystery facebook accounts (here), (here), and (here) while poking fun at the genre as a whole. 

By the end, the audience seemingly stumbles across a potential murder in progress and is left unraveling the layers of a true mystery as the conventional boundaries of the theater are broken. At times, the play is both goofy and self deprecating, as one would expect from a Stoppard play, and the whole experience makes for an enjoyable 90 minutes. Performances are: Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm. Definitely worth checking out!

Sounds kind of fun.  I'm def going to try to make it over when I get a chance.
