Case in Point

Superman wasn’t the first fictional character to die and come back. Holmes did it, homes. When fans demanded more stories, savvy Arthur Conan Doyle figured out how no-shit-Sherlock could escape his fatal predicament and return, as he did in "The Adventure of the Empty House," superpowers or no. Even after Conan Doyle’s own demise, Holmes’ and Watson’s adventures continued on page, stage, and screen, including in the hands of Charles Marowitz, a big deal from the Royal Shakespeare Company whom we actually met at ASU once.

Marowitz’ Sherlock’s Last Case, at Fountain Hills Theater through Sunday, November 10, begins with a letter from the alleged son of the allegedly late Professor Moriarty. What next? Find out yourself at 8 p.m. Thursday, October 31, at 11445 North Saguaro Boulevard in dark and scary Fountain Hills. Visit for tickets, $20 and $25. Call 480-837-9661 to discuss Senior Thursdays and other potential discounts.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 25. Continues through Nov. 10, 2013
