★★★ "Theaters in Chicago have stayed away from J.B. Priestley's 'An Inspector Calls,' wherein a mysterious police inspector calls on a wealthy Yorkshire family after the suicide of young working-class woman, at least until director David Darlow's very solid new production for the Remy Bumppo Theatre Company, which opened Monday night at the Greenhouse Theater Center. There are no fireworks, nor high concept, nor grand conceptual design on the docket. Instead, Darlow's modestly scaled production relies mostly on some very solid acting, but there is a hint of the metaphysical in much of what transpires here. The timing of this new production, which I think very savvy, makes the case that 'An Inspector Calls' belongs at a time of year, the only time of year, when we are unusually receptive to Dickensian-style lessons promoting social justice." -Chris Jones
