Mark Shanahan's A Sherlock Carol opens tonight, November 22, at New World Stages. The production is slated to run through January 2.

The cast includes Dan Domingues, Anissa Felix, Drama Desk Award winner Isabel Keating (The Boy From Oz), and Mark Price. Joe Delafield, Alexandra Kopko, and Byron St. Cyr round out the company.
