Special note: Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have rescheduled our June performances of SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE ADVENTURE OF THE COPPER BEECHES at Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum. We now hope to bring you this production in August 2020. We are following ongoing developments as closely as we’re sure you are, and we will adjust plans accordingly. The safety of our audiences, staff, and artists remains our top priority.
While we are hopeful that performances will be able to proceed in August, we also expect that some social distancing measures will still be in place. To that end, we are implementing some changes in the staging of this production that will make it a bit different from previous performances you may have attended at Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum:
- Attendance at all performances will be capped at 20 people, in order to allow space for social distancing.
- The performance will use only the large parlor room on the ground floor of the mansion, as well as possibly some outdoor spaces. We will not be making use of some of the smaller spaces in the house for this production – again, this will be done to allow everyone to maintain social distancing.
If you are a current ticket holder, your ticket will be honored at the August performance of your choice. If you are unable to attend in August, you will receive a refund. Please contact Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum in order to reschedule or to receive your refund.
Join Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on a trip to the sinister Copper Beeches (played by the inimitable Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum), where a desperate young governess finds herself at the center of a baffling mystery. Together with the famous detectives, we’re drawn deep into the secrets of the Rucastle family – their threatening hound, menacingly enthusiastic patriarch, strange requests and rules, the locked and forbidden room on the top floor, and the mysterious stranger who keeps appearing at the windows.
And while we wait for live performances to resume, Red Monkey Theater Group Artistic Director Tal Aviezer (Sherlock Holmes) is reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, in costume, for free, from his living room, on Youtube.
