One of the outstanding successes of the New York season, this play was brilliantely produced by Harry Moses at the Empire Theatre, after an enormously successful run in England. It is a fascinating combination of mystery play and psychological study. It shows how the gradual revelation of the truth about a murdered man disrupts his family and friends and shows them up for the rotters they are. George Jean Nathan writes of it that it "provided the only intelligent new play that the Broadway stage has uncovered thus far in a season."
Dangerous Corner was first produced by Harry Moses at the Empire Theatre in New York City on October 27, 1932 and was directed by Elsa Lazareff.
