Red Bull Theater has announced casting for its upcoming production of The Government Inspector, starring Michael Urie. Jesse Berger directs the comedy, which is adapted from Nikolai Gogol's play by Jeffrey Hatcher.

When the crooked leadership of a provincial village discovers that an undercover inspector is coming to root out their commonplace corruption, the town weaves a web of bribery, lies, and utter madness. Urie heads the company alongside Mary Testa, Arnie Burton, Stephen DeRosa, and Michael McGrath, with Bruce Dow, Ryan Garbayo, Kelly Hutchinson, David Manis, Ben Mehl, Talene Monahon, Luis Moreno, James Rana, and Mary Lou Rosato completing the ensemble.

The Government Inspector will have set design by Alexis Distler, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Peter West, with sound design and an original song composed by Greg Pliska.

Performances begin May 16 at the Duke on 42nd Street, with opening night set for June 1.
