2016 Joseph Jefferson Nomination - Outstanding Actor In a Leading Role in a Musical
"...a wonderfully acerbic and stylish performance by Nick Sandys... a verbally bristling, stunningly sung, ideally realized world premiere."
Chicago Sun Times - Highly Recommended Read Full Review
"... Nick Sandys is a complete delight as Holmes, delivering the witty words by Reeger, Shannon and Mahler with the driest of wit and perfect timing."

"Nick Sandys's Holmes is every inch the deerstalker-touting brain we know him to be, but not inhuman, either, even as just an apparition."
BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended Read Full Review
"As creature and creator, Sandys and Lindner croon out the complexities of their duos “Just Your Ears” and “A Three Pipe Problem.” (Sandys, who was a superb Henry Higgins for Light Opera Works, brings true panache to his talking patter songs straight out of My Fair Lady.)" Stage and Cinema - Recommended Read Full Review
"Nick Sandys is an impeccable singing Holmes, his every "elementary" aglow with arch self-certainty."
NewCity Chicago- Highly Recommended Read Full Review
"...The cast of this show reads like a who’s who of Chicago musical theatre. It stars the considerable talents of Michael Aaron Lindner (Sense and Sensibility,” “Road Show,” “Hairspray,”), as Conan Doyle, and Nick Sandys (Artistic Director of Remy Bumppo Theatre, and recently seen in the title role of “An Inspector Calls”), as Holmes. Individually these two actors are magnificent; together they’re an unbeatable team."

"Sandys is the scene stealer. His lordly, peremptory bearing oozes the traditional Holmes that lives in our hearts and minds free of contemporary cynicism or satire." ChicagoTheaterBeat.com
