(Hollywood, CA) The Producers at June Entertainment, R. Scott Reid, John Ryan, Jr. and team had another successful opening night premier for their new theatrical production, “Sherlock Holmes” this time in Toronto Canada. The show opened to a sold out audience at the iconic Ed Mirvish Theatre in downtown Toronto this week. The all star cast lead by David Arquette as Sherlock, James Maslow as Watson and Renee Olstead as Lady Irene St.-John, is accompanied by a large supporting cast. The show is opening for a second time after the North American tour kicked off a six-performance, “Tour Preview” engagement in Los Angeles which also had a sold out red carpet premier that was well attended by Hollywood elite and press. The show will run in Toronto until November 8th, then the performance will open in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, Illinois with subsequent cities planned into 2016.
Producer Scott Reid says “David, James and Renee are the perfect cast, as this show is not the stuffy theater of days past. It is a fresh and very funny take on a classic and has a unique young, hip and fun vibe with Steampunk costumes designed by some of the leading designers fromCirque du Soleil.”
This version of Sherlock Holmes was the past recipient of five prestigious Montreal English Theatre Awards, including Outstanding Production and Outstanding Director. The company includes much of the original cast from the original production, including the director Andrew Shaver.
As seasoned feature film producers John Ryan Jr. and R. Scott Reid from June Entertainment are producing both the stage production as well as a planned Live Televised version to air in 2016.
“We look forward to reaching out to those that love live theater but also putting a new comedic spin on a classic which will expand the audiences that can experience live theatre” says June Entertainment CEO John Ryan, Jr.
