M&M Performing Arts Company & Red Monkey Theater Group Present
Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Copper Beeches at Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum this August
Adapted by Tal Aviezer from the classic story by Arthur Conan Doyle
Red Monkey Theater Group and M&M Performing Arts bring another site-specific Sherlock Holmes performance to Bartow-Pell Mansion in August. Join Sherlock Holmes (Tal Aviezer) and Dr. Watson (Mikel Von Brodbeck) on a journey to the sinister Copper Beeches (played by the inimitable Bartow-Pell Mansion), where a desperate young governess finds herself at the center of a baffling mystery. Performances at Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum at 895 Shore Road, Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, NY 10464. The cast also includes Sean Coffey, Amy Frey, Melinda O’Brien and Derek Tarson with stage management by Emmy Schwartz and Nan Weiss.
Performances will take place outside on the veranda of Bartow-Pell Mansion with time to view the beautiful gardens and run from August 14 through 23 at various times. Tickets are $35. Appropriate for age 8 and up. Visitor Information call 718-885-1461. Tickets limited to 20 per performance to enable social distancing. Please see special note below on COVID-19 issues and how they will be handled at the performances, below. Tickets available at: www.bartowpellmansionmuseum.org.
Please Note, in the interests of safety, the show will be staged completely outside, on the large veranda immediately behind the house. This will allow for proper social distancing and of course outdoor environments are generally safer right now. The audience will not enter the mansion; the building will still be available for restrooms only, sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer will be provided.
The play runs about one hour and has no intermission.
Audience members will be required to wear masks throughout the performance. Actors, who will not be wearing masks, will maintain social distance from the audience.
