Coming to Marylebone Theatre this Christmas, the A Sherlock Carol Broadway production is sure to delight London audiences with its wit and mystery. Set several years after Dickens’ famous miser has learned the error of his ways, Ebenezer Scrooge suffers an unexpected and peculiar death. Tiny Tim, now grown up, visits Sherlock Holmes to solicit his help – but it’s a dark and sinister Christmas Eve, once again haunted by spirits of the past, present and future. Can Holmes overcome his own ghosts to solve the mystery?
A Sherlock Carol is clever, humorous and fun, and with a talented cast bringing the story to life, it’s one of the best theatre shows in London this season. Let’s learn about the cast in more detail.
