Production History

The Government Inspector
World Premiere
By Nikolai Gogol
Adapted by Armina LaManna and David O'Connor
Directed by David O'Connor
November 21 - December 28, 2008

When a small town full of bumbling, loony officials hear that a government inspector is paying a visit, they are thrown into a panic! Since its first performance in 1836, this bustling satire from the pen of Russian comedian Nikolai Gogol has resonated with audiences all over the world. This all-new adaptation is an imaginative, madcap theatrical event perfect for ages eight to ninety-eight!
