Onstage: The Hound of the Baskervilles

If you missed Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s nutty, through-the-looking-glass rendition of the Sherlock Holmes tale last summer in a sold-out run, you have another chance to laugh yourself silly, since it’s receiving an encore staging this month. 

Three of Cincy Shakes’ best actors — Jeremy Dubin, Nick Rose and Brent Vimtrup — are reprising their manic multi-role performances of this witty, laugh-inducing script, again directed by Michael Evan Haney, assistant artistic director at the Cincinnati Playhouse for the past decade (and always a sure bet for a cleverly staged show).

It was a hit in London, where it was described as “pure comic bliss … reminiscent of the Marx Brothers.”

If you saw the production last summer, you’ve probably already lined up some tickets to be there again. How about the rest of you? 

Thursday-Sunday through June 30. $22-$32. Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, 719 Race St., Downtown, 513-381-2273, cincyshakes.com.
