Nikolai Gogol’s deeply silly satire of small-town corruption paints a riotous portrait of rampaging self-delusion. When the crooked leadership of a provincial village in Russia discovers that an undercover inspector is coming to root out their commonplace corruption, the town weaves a web of bribery, lies, and utter madness. Red Bull Theater welcomes you to the New York premiere of Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation-- a hilarious reminder of the terrifying timelessness of bureaucracy and buffoonery.
