About this show

In Gogol's witty and hilarious satire of provincial Russian bureaucracy, Khlestakov, a civil servant who is running out of money, travels from Saint Petersburg to a small town where his imagination runs rampant. When bumbling town officials mistake him for an incognito inspector investigating them for corruption, a comedy of errors begins and chaos ensues. Directed by Artistic Director Michael Kahn, The Government Inspector portrays self deception, mockery and pandemonium in this ironic comedy.
