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

Truly mesmerizing! My companions and I were impressed by the caliber of the production, The Christmas Carol. We laughed out loud, tapped our toes to the music, and were drawn in by Scrooge's emotions. This was the first time attending a production at the Victory Garden Theatre, and we left the theatre making plans to attend again.

<p>For those who think Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol to create a sentimental-Hallmark-greeting-card experience, think again! When Provision Theater’s Artistic Director Tim Gregory and multiple-Jeff-Award-winning director/writer David Bell actually read A Christmas Carol they realized that they, too, had been led astray over the years by the over-simplification and over-commercialization of this great work. At its core, Dickens' classic is a story of deep human transformation—and the great hope that such transformation is possible, even for the Scrooge-iest of us. This Jefferson Award Nominated adaptation, written by Gregory and Bell, is one of the truest to the original theme you’ll ever see. </p> <p>Brad Armancost returns this year as the miserly Scrooge, reviving his Jeff-nominated performance as Best Actor, along with a stellar cast of actors, singers and dancers to bring you this moving version of a must-see Christmas classic. </p>
