Baker Street Readers perform via podcast
BRATTLEBORO — While The Baker Street Readers' live performances at Hooker-Dunham Theater were postponed by the COVID-19
pandemic, the troupe's performances are still available online.
The Baker Street Readers were only two shows into their second season of live Sherlock Holmes adventure readings from the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when the coronavirus outbreak caused them to postpone the rest of their performances indefinitely.
But those performances are continuing as part of the new Baker Street Readers Podcast.
Just like the live shows, the podcast stars James Gelter as Sherlock Holmes and Tony Grobe as Dr. John Watson with a routing list of special guests. Three episodes are already available, all featuring stories from the collection The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.
The podcast is available through the online artist-funding platform Patreon. For the same price as their live shows, $5, audiences can enjoy a new episode each month, or two episodes a month for $8. For $15 a month audiences receive two episodes every month, a shoutout at the end of each episode, and a mug.
The first episode, "The Adventure of the Gloria Scott," is now available for free at bakerstreetreaderspodcast.com. For more information, visit the website, facebook.com/bakerstreetreaders, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
