We here at Jacob Sidney Enterprises understand the need to maximize value for your classic-farce-revivified-for-the-great-recession dollar, especially in today's economy. That's why we've teamed up with the good folks at Furious Theatre Company and the Theatre @ Boston Court to bring you a variety of opportunities to see Nikolai Gogol's THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR for up to 85% off* full price! That was not a typographical error! I just intentionally and correctly informed you that you can see this show for 5 freakin' dollars. Check out the details below.
Oded Gross reimagines Gogol's corrupt rural bureaucrats as the 21st Century 1% conniving their way off a cliff of hilarity under the direction of Stefan Novinsky. Also there are songs. THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR features John Billingsley, Alan Brooks, Joe Fria, Megan Goodchild, Sara Hennessy, Shannon Holt, Adam Haas Hunter, Dana Kelly Jr., Jacob Sidney and Eileen T'Kaye; Production Stage Manager Kevin Shewey; Sound Designer, Arrangements & Musical Direction John Ballinger; Set Designer Donna Marquet; Lighting Designer Steven Young; Casting Director Raul Staggs; and a delightful confection of guest choreography from Ken Roht.
