About this show

"Marvelous and filled with marvels. In the Stoppardian world of The Watson Intelligence, Madeleine George's human, dramatic play takes surprising turns." — New York Magazine

The (Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence tells the story of four Watsons: the trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; the loyal engineer who built Bell's first telephone; the unstoppable supercomputer that became a Jeopardy champ; and an amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. These four constant companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people — and machines — upon which we all depend.

The play originally premiered at Playwrights Horizons in 2013 and went on to be a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and the winner of the 2014 Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Memorial Playwriting Award.

Director: Jean Dobie Giebel
Featuring: Christopher Dippel, Claire Engel, and Peter Friedrich
