**** Highly Recommended **** As an aficionado of suspense stories, both written and staged, I have to say that The National Theatre of Great Britain’s production of “An Inspector Calls” is one of the best. It kept my attention riveted on the stage for the entire hour and 45 minutes! Everything from the fog swirling about the stage to the boys playing in the road to the Birling’s glass house (perhaps as in the old adage about people in glass houses) combined to set the mood. The suspense will hold your attention, but the subtexts will keep you thinking long after you’ve gone home. 4 BIG Spotlights
“An Inspector Calls” runs through March 10th in The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier. Patrons receive a 40% discount on parking in the Navy Pier Garages, so be sure and get your ticket validated in the CST lobby. Running time is roughly an hour and 45 minutes, no intermission.
