The Inspector General

by Nikolai Gogol
March 6-29, 2008
N. Rampart Community Center

The unscrupulous mayor of an insular and provincial city has adeptly surrounded himself with a flock of crooked and apathetic officials. The hospital is a catastrophe, the teachers are unqualified, the courtroom houses geese, the postmaster reads all the mail, and the police are perpetually drunk. When news that a government inspector will arrive incognito, the mayor hastily attempts to conceal the widespread corruption. In a very special guest appearance, New Orleans’ actual Inspector General Robert Cerasoli joined the cast for a few performances.
