Finally, we speak with actors from the show "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily". Joining the program are Todd Waite and Christopher Salazar.  The wit of Oscar Wilde meets the cunning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In this comic sleuthing caper, Wilde’s muse, actress Lillie Langtry (a.k.a the Jersey Lily) presents Holmes with what seems like an open and shut case. The play is running April 14-May 7th at the Alley Theater in Downtown Houston.
