Red Bull Theater's season continues with The Government Inspector at the Duke on 42nd Street later this spring. The play, starring Urie, is an adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's play by Jeffrey Hatcher. The story is described as follows: "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."
