December 11–13, 2020

The UR International Theatre Program ventures into online territory with its inaugural production adapted, designed and directed specifically for the online world!  Join us for a contemporary take on Nikolai Gogol's celebrated political satire The Government Inspector.  With a cast of 47, including students and alumni located across the US and as far away as Guatemala and China, The Government Inspector is considered the greatest theatrical comedy written in the Russian language.  An hilarious satire on the (alas) all too familiar human traits of self-dealing, corruption, greed, and abuse of power, The Government Inspector will seem all too familiar, while making you laugh and think.  The production--a truly global intergenerational theatrical endeavor--is expected to open in early December.  Subscribe to our mailing list for updates!
