Watson: The Last Great Tale of the Legendary Sherlock Holmes

Literature's most famous second fiddle finally gets his due in a slapstick farce from writer Jaime Robledo. Casting Watson as the beleaguered babysitter to Holmes' twitchy drug addict, this re-imagining sends the duo on a globe-hopping adventure to prevent—or maybe cause—a world war. When Queen Victoria charges the illustrious sleuth with delivering a puzzle box to a political summit, Holmes is quick to accept, and almost quicker to get distracted. Thus, the newly-wed Watson must bid adieu to his wife Mary and assist his comrade on an adventure that spans London, Vienna, and Budapest via hansom cab, hot-air balloon, and horseback. Popping up in this madcap adventure are classic Conan Doyle characters such as brother Mycroft Holmes and love interest Irene Adler, as well as an unexpected appearance by Sigmund Freud. All the while, members of Moriarty's criminal network tirelessly pursue the duo—at least, according to the ramblings of the paranoid sleuth who will undoubtedly end up taking all the credit.

Gretna Theatre

Only the trees remember a time when there wasn’t a theater at 200 Pennsylvania Avenue, and, except for that creepy one, they aren’t talking. Built in 1892 as part of the American Chautauqua movement, the playhouse became a local theater company in 1927 and has been staging summer productions ever since—with the exception of one year. In 1994, a brutal winter buried the theater beneath roughly 150 tons of snow, causing the roof to collapse on February 12. Within two days, though, the company had plans to host their shows under a massive tent until a new stage opened in the summer of 1995, proving that Gretna knows the show must always go on.
