A young girl's suicide in an English industrial city brings a detective to the doorway of a British family, allegedly on a routine inquiry in connection with the death. But plot twists and surprises will keep you guessing during this haunting thriller about the respectable Birling family, whose secrets and sins are exposed when the mysterious Inspector Goole interrupts their lives. This popular drawing-room mystery by J.B. Priestley is a fascinating look into the world of a wealthy person as he or she is faced with guilt or blame for a moral wrong. A Broadway revival of An Inspector Calls won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Revival. Learn More

We left before the 3rd act. Marivaux's comedies are famous for combining playful language with physicality inspired by commedia del'arte, but this production had none of either . (The sole commedia "mask" retained by this production never won a smile, and quickly grew tiresome.) Stolid, static, dull. The audience looked grim, too. The producers and director seemed not to have a single idea. Despite their claims, they did nothing to update the action to the 1960s, other than to open & close the acts with (great!) music from the era.

Show was looooong. 2:45 with two intermissions. Did go reasonably fast though. Performance was well done and reasonably well acted...plot was eh. Can't say it was the best thing I've ever seen or why Remy Bumbo chose to put it on, by not mad I went.
