‘SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE FINAL ADVENTURE'
8 p.m., Arkansas Repertory Theatre, $20-$35.

The Rep's latest production has it all: A famous detective, his famous nemesis, a beautiful and mysterious damsel in distress, and the foggy, seamy streets of London. “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure” follows Holmes as his pursuit of small-time crooks leads to a larger, more dangerous network of criminals. Playwright Steven Dietz adapted the original 1899 “Sherlock Holmes” stage play, and it won the 2007 Edgar Award for best mystery play. Joseph Graves stars as Holmes. It's his 10th production with the Rep; he also played Lennie in “Of Mice and Men,” Iago in “Othello,” Henry Higgins in “My Fair Lady” and other major leading roles. Northwest Arkansas native Heidi-Marie Ferren, now of New York, plays Holmes' lady-love, Irene. Trusty sidekick Dr. Watson is played by Colin McPhillamy, who has worked extensively in Britain and the United States and is making his Arkansas debut. The show runs through April 27.
