Day One: A Sherlock Story is a musical drama sure to thrill and entertain all. The audience follows John Watson as he moves in with Sherlock Holmes, and is drawn along on his many mysteries, including his encounters with Irene Adler, seductive dominatrix, and his arch-nemesis, James Moriarty. Along the way, both John and Sherlock are faced with the question of what it means to be ordinary in an extraordinary world.

Production History

Day One: A Sherlock Story was co-written with Grace Heller after the success of my inaugural original musical Glitter: A Musical Parody.  The show became Black Tie Productions' 2014 Spring Musical, playing to sold out audiences at nearly every performance.
