The Alamo Theatre


The curved pipe, the suave dressing gown, “Elementary, my dear Watson”: all quintessentially Sherlock Holmes and all derived from one man. No, not from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; but from a man named William Gillette. William Gillette was an American stage actor, playwright, and director most prolific around the turn of the 20th century. Gillette was extremely well-respected within the theater community for his numerous roles and the plays he authored; but his most famous and most popular role was as Sherlock Holmes in a play he wrote and performed in more than 1,300 times.
