02 | Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Laughter is "elementary my dear Watson."  Ken Ludwig's acclaimed adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, is full of intrigue and laughs. The male heirs of the Baskerville family are being murdered one by one and the world famous Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted sidekick, Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir. Witness five talented actors playing 40 quirky characters, and venture deep into a world filled with disguises, silly accents and murderous deceit.  These intrepid detectives follow leads, unravel clues, hit dead-ends, and zigzag with the story until the shockingly funny conclusion. All is not what it seems. Do you know whodunit?

Hampton Roads Philharmonic Mendelssohn's concert overture, The Hebrides, opens the program.  Inspired by the composer's trip to Fingals Cave off the coast of Scotland, this works' themes depict lonliness, solitude, and the power of the sea.   Next, the winner of the orchestra's 2nd Annual Young Artist Competition will be featured.  Held each fall, young soloists from the area compete in this competition for the opportunity to perform a concerto of their choice with the orchestra.  Finishing the concert, the orchestra will perform Haydn's festive "London" Symphony No. 104.

24 | An Evening with Molly Ringwald

Long before she was known as the Golden Globe-nominated actress for generation-defining performances in The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles, Molly Ringwald was performing with her jazz pianist father and his band.  From that day on she never looked back. Ringwald gives a fresh spin on American Songbook standards and pops classics like nobody else, with a smile and charm that has illuminated hundreds of venues throughout the world. Appearing with her jazz quartet, Ringwald’s star-power vocals shine bright on “Sooner or Later” (from Dick Tracy), “Don’t You (Forget About Me),” and many more legendary songs.  You’ll come to see this iconic film start in a whole new light, onstage at The American Theatre.
