My Dear Watson is a new musical based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's characters, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. In this dramatic musical told from the perspective of Dr. Watson, we are forced to reanalyze and redefine love and friendship for a man who is seemingly incapable of both. Is there a man in the machine?
My Dear Watson was produced as a participant in the 2019 Chicago Musical Theatre Festival and Michelle McKenzie-Voight was awarded Best Actress of the festival for her performance as Mrs. Hudson.
