Sherlock Through The Looking-Glass

Whitmore-Lindley Theatre Center
11006 Magnolia Blvd. North Hollywood

Arthur Conan Doyle collides with Lewis Carroll in Sherlock Through The Looking-Glass, a darkly humorous reimagining of the Great Detective that has Holmes facing his greatest case yet - mass insanity. When an outbreak of madness has the citizens of London tumbling down the rabbit hole, only one man can save the day. But the world's foremost logician may have finally met his match by entering a world where logic does not exist. Faithful to its sources yet wholly original, Sherlock Through The Looking-Glass explores the nature of reality and the choices we make.

Los Angeles Times - Not Recommended

"...The mystery-driven first half moves at a fairly brisk pace, but a second-act plunge into Carroll’s Wonderland proves pretentious and interminable as 12 cast members in cheesy stylized masks chant and hop in unison through barely intelligible recitations from Carroll’s text. The minimalist black box set forgoes all opportunity for imaginative design."

Stage Scene LA - Recommended

"...The world's greatest detective meets the author of Alice of Wonderland in Gus Krieger's Sherlock Through The Looking Glass, the latest from The Porters Of Hellsgate, and if Krieger's play could stand some trimming, tightening, and clarifying, topnotch performances and exciting staging combine to further solidify the Porters' reputation as one of L.A.'s most exciting young acting troupes."

The Tolucan Times - Recommended

"...Imagine Holmes’ brilliant mind of observation trapped into the upside-down world of the rabbit hole. That is the show’s premise. Throw in superb acting, sharp writing, and you have a production worthy of cheers and applause."

"...To the credit of director and ensemble, the plot flows coherently and seamlessly forward. There is just too much of it."

"...What’s particularly noteworthy about this production is the feeling of having been transported to late Victorian London. It’s a testament to the clever script and exceptional cast that the stage disappears as you enter a psychological space, straddling logic and hysteria that, oddly enough, seems quite real. Dexterously written and directed by Gus Krieger, this dizzying tale shall satisfy the Sherlockian and Surreallian in each of us."

Night Tinted Glasses - Recommended

"...Along the way, I must say Sherlock Through the Looking Glass goes after some genuinely disturbing stuff–revenge, sexual sins and guilt, the source of madness and how it leaks into our seemingly rational, logical world, the embrace of chaos as opposed to order. That is what elevated this play beyond formula, beyond a mere retread of Sherlock Holmes’ greatest hits, out past a charming pastiche into something with genuine revelation about parts of life."
