Trivia

This production was produced by the Williamstown Theatre Festival as a stage play. It was filmed for television by A&E as one of their 'A&E Stage' attempts to support arts and cultural performances. Unfortunately, the melodramatic acting style that works in a 600-seat theater didn't translate well to the media of television, particularly in close-ups. See more »

Quick, witty and live! Langella's great Sherlock filmed closely on stage
27 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FRANK LANGELLA beats the majority of Sherlocks by kilometers in this live onstage five-act production that even features 12-year-old Christian SLATER's debut. I have the archive and watch it repeatedly just to take further note of how assuredly it demonstrates that an excellent cast with theatrical experience can nearly always show most film actors where to get off when it comes to long line memorization and beautifully controlled delivery. Plus, it's a fine script and what breathtaking set-changes on a single stage! Also known as "The Strange Case of Alice Faulkner, this is even more unusual in that it is a stage play, yet filmed so well. Deerstalkers off to the whole crew! umacooter2@charter.net
