Television audiences have seen Lucy Liu portray detective Sherlock Holmes’ trusted assistant Dr. Watson on the CBS program “Elementary.” Now, Vermont theater lovers can see Holmes himself undergo a gender-role reversal in Dorset Theatre Festival’s production of Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Actress Liz Wisan stars as the private sleuth in this comic mystery in which a family curse threatens the future of the clan’s heir. Adding star power to a cast of five thespians — who portray more than 40 characters — is “House of Cards” actor Dave Quay in the role of Watson. Jen Wineman directs this fresh take on a classic character, keeping audience members on the edge of their seats.

Price: $18-52.
