Shorty Pants—Director Kristen Loree will be delving into some of the less conspicuous short pieces in the Mark Twain canon, such as “Was it Heaven? Or Hell?,” “Carnival of Crime and Connecticut,” “Eve's Diary,” “Advice to Girls,” “Adam's Diary” and other brief work by the master of socially incisive humor. Twain Shorts apparently takes plenty of artistic license with Twain's work. Odds are pretty high this will be a hoot. The show opens this weekend at Sol Arts (712 Central SW). Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., through June 4. For more information or to make reservations, call 244-0049.
The Great Detective—Last time I was in London, I visited Sherlock Holmes' fictional home at 221B Baker Street. There's an excellent museum housed at the address that's faithful to the apartment described in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous stories. Jack Key, an international expert on Sherlock Holmes, will be at the Taylor Ranch Library this Saturday, May 27, at 2 p.m. to deliver a free lecture on the role of medicine in various Sherlock Holmes stories. Fellow Sherlock fanatics, unite! For details, call 897-8816.
