Yesterday I posted a blog about the new London production of Art. Having seen the show during it's initial Broadway run, I was thrilled that the show was returning to the place where it got it's start over twenty years ago. Now hot on the heels of that announcement, is the news that An Inspector Calls is also returning to London in a brand new production.
The show, which holds the distinction as the winner of more awards than any show in history, is set to open at the Playhouse Theatre in London on November 4, and run thru February 4, 2017. Now when I first saw the show, I had no idea what is was about except that it had won four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Play.
So there I sat at the Booth Theatre on a hot Saturday afternoon waiting for the show to begin. Cut to less than two hours later, and I couldn't believe what I had just seen. Up until that point most of the shows that I had seen on Broadway were musicals. Suffice to say I loved the show.
Now without giving to much away I will give you a brief synopsis about the show. Set over the course of one night in April 1912, in the fictional town of Brumley, An Inspector Calls, takes place at the home of the Birling family who's peaceful dinner is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Inspector Goole, who is there to investigate the death of a young woman. As the evening progresses, hidden secrets are exposed that threaten to tear this once close family apart at the seams.
Now do you see why I loved it? By the way for those of you who want tickets to see the show you are in luck. We sell it. Not only that but at prices that are lower than you will find anywhere else. Get your tickets to see An Inspector Calls at the Playhouse Theatre in London. Until next time theatre fans.
