Government Inspector, The
In Gogol’s witty and hilarious satire of provincial Russian bureaucracy, Khlestakov, a civil servant whose imagination runs rampant, has arrived from Saint Petersburg to a small town and is living it up on the government’s dime. When bumbling town officials mistake him for an incognito inspector investigating them for corruption, a comedy of errors begins and chaos ensues. Featuring Derek Smith (Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant of Venice) and directed by Artistic Director, Michael Kahn, “America’s premier classical director” (Atlanta Journal Constitution), The Government Inspector portrays self deception, mockery, and pandemonium in this ironic comedy.
