"The Moonstone" ★★★

An exotic gem from India sets off a string of misadventures and misunderstandings for a gaggle of handsome Brits. Wilkie Collins' classic 1868 Victorian detective tale is now in a tidy world-premiere adaptation courtesy of Lifeline Theatre. This isn’t a thrill-a-minute ride, but a cozy immersion in the tropes that would later dominate the world of mystery writers: strange visitors, double-dealing relatives, and eccentric detectives. Through March 27 at Lifeline Theatre, 6912 N. Glenwood Ave.; $32-$35 at 773-761-4477 or - KERRY REID
