The Public Theater presents ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’


LEWISTON — On Jan. 25-Feb. 3, The Public Theater will present “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” a take-off on the popular Sherlock Holmes story. In the style of “The Complete Wks of Wllm Shakespeare abridged,” this is pure comic bliss.  Presented as a hilarious side-splitting spoof about an ancient family curse, a spectral hound, and a deranged killer on the loose, this must-see madcap adventure is perfect for mystery devotees and fun-loving theater goers — in fact, the “moor” the merrier. Janet Mitchko, TPT’s co-artistic director, called the show “a ton of fun” with a “very silly” cast, including two of the zany actors who performed in TPT’s production of “Around the World in 80 Days” last season. For more information about The Public Theatre, call 782-3200 or visit
