"...This National Theatre of Great Britain's landmark, modern reimaging production of J.B. Priestley's classic thriller, directed by Stephen Daldry, has won multiple Olivier and Tony Awards. The original 1945 script, set in 1912, centers on Inspector Goole and his unexpected arrival at the prosperous Birling family home, shattering their peaceful engagement dinner party by his investigations into the death Eva Smith, a local 26-year old woman. As he questions each in the group of wealthy folks to admit their possible part in the poor woman's recent suicide, their startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives and challenge audiences to question their own consciences about civic responsibilities."

"...In his sometimes astonishing, sometimes mesmerizing, sometimes a touch too tricky for its own good, production, Daldry elevates the play to an importance it deserves. In this case, actors play a secondary role to the special effects, so, while the cast is pretty much good enough, it is a far cry from being sensational or memorable. One's mouth waters at the thought of the cast of the original "pedestrian" production in 1946 which included Ralph Richardson, Margaret Leighton, Harry Andrews and a young Alec Guinness in the delicious role of the alcoholic son. But let's not cavil. This is a heady piece of stagecraft and better than anything else currently playing in Los Angeles."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...In today's era of open corruption at the highest levels of government and business, the themes of An Inspector Calls are distressingly relevant. That's one good reason to see the show, but the main one is that this production is a stunner on every level, and a welcome revival indeed."
