"A delicious satire."

The New York Times

Closed 20 Aug 2017

Starring Michael Urie

A bustling satire of political corruption, The Government Inspector is a fantastic farce chock full of expertly staged slapstick and sight gags. Adapted from Gogol's Revizor by Jeffrey Hatcher, this show began at The Duke on 42nd Street Street earlier this year, where it won glowing notices for its comedic verve from the critics. The story centers on a village in Russia which is thrown into disarray when it's revealed an undercover inspector has arrived to investigate claims of corruption.

Theater and television favorite Michael Urie (Buyer and Cellar, Ugly Betty) leads this talented cast as the titular inspector, alongside two-time Tony nominee Mary Testa (On the Town, 42nd Street) and Tony winner Michael McGrath (Nice Work if You Can Get It, Spamalot). Jesse Berger directs.
