What the Critics are Saying about The Real Inspector Hound

"[Actors Ralph Cosham, Michael Tolaydo, and John Dow with director John Vreeke] are all back at MetroStage this spring with another (and superior) Stoppard work... and they're better than ever."
- TalkinBroadway.com

"[Director John] Vreeke’s production features a number of zesty performances, and most of the cast appears to be having a blast — but it’s Cosham’s brooding Moon who seems to live most fully in Stoppard’s delectably language-drunk, hall-of-mirrors world."
- Washington Post

"...get carried away by the pleasure of the performances, especially Miss Flye’s deadpan double-takes and deliciously demented spins on the hackneyed dialogue. Mr. Cosham’s hound-dog demeanor and high-falutin’ expressions of inferiority perfectly embody Birdboot’s splintered spirit and Mr. Dow has his moments as the speed-racing Magnus, a wheelchair-bound guest at Muldoon Manor."
- DC Theatre Scene

"...the farce immediately tumbles into nonstop, high-octane entertainment."

- Washington Examiner

"It is a delightful show with marvelous performances and if you've seen a few English manor mysteries you'll enjoy it all the more."
- Alexandria Gazette Packet

"With a crack cast and a dizzying plot, it’s another winner for MetroStage."
- Alexandria Times

"This is a great family show particularly since Tom Stoppard is such a wordsmith that he doesn't resort to vulgarisms typically found in current drama."
- AllArtsReview4U

"...it is an entertaining romp that will make both critics and regular patrons laugh."
- WeLoveDC.com

"The play is such unmitigated fun that you are almost certain to sit tingling on the edge of your seat, waiting for the next unexpected twist and unforeseen turn."
- Fairfax Times
