Directed by two-time Obie Award winner Leigh Silverman, the limited engagement continues through Dec. 29 at Playwrights Horizons’ Mainstage Theater (416 West 42nd Street).
The new work is described as such: "Watson (Mr. Conlee): trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning 'Jeopardy!' champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. 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."
Tickets may be purchased online via TicketCentral.com, by phone at (212) 279-4200 and in person at the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 West 42nd Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues).
