"He’s a man who is not to be beat." [SIGN] 

 

Baker Street Beat is many things: it's a book. It's a website. But more importantly, it's Dan's personal passion that combines many of his life interests.

 

In this episode, Dan Andriacco — author, Sherlockian, journalist and more — joins us to talk about his fascinating history with Sherlock Holmes, how he came to write a number of successful books, from the Sebastian McCabe / Jeff Cody series to a variety of Sherlockian pastiches, the people he has met, and the many interests that fuel his passion. And given that we're posting this on Easter weekend, it's completely appropriate that Dan co-founded a Sherlockian society called The Vatican Cameos.

 

Tune in to hear the greatest compliment about Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes that Dan ever heard and how a session at a library record player started it all...

"Has anything escaped me?" [HOUN] 

 

Sherlock Holmes has been associated with the stage since Charles Brookfield was the first to play the character in Under the Clock in 1893. Since that time, the great detective has been portrayed countless times by hundreds of actors in big productions from the West End to Broadway, as well as in community theaters everywhere.

 

In this episode, we spoke with playwright David MacGregor, who is a resident artist at Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea, Michigan. He has written for the stage and film and his inspiration includes Shakespeare, Dickens, and of course, Conan Doyle. David's latest work is an intriguing tale called Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Elusive Ear.

 

David doesn't give away the plot, but he did tell us that Oscar Wilde, Vincent van Gough and others find themselves in the presence of the great detective, and the result is a mixture of comedy, tragedy, romance, adventure and more. Directed by Guy Sanville and holding previews on March 29, the play opens to the public on April 6, 2018.
