The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence

by Madeleine George, directed by Tony Pallone

March 23-25, 2018 (Fri-Sun) Watson: trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning Jeopardy! champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. These four constant companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people—and machines—upon which we all depend. This highly original play was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2014
