Odessa Academic Theatre of Musical Comedy
The comedy about adventurers and swindlers, although written a century and a half ago, remains extremely modern.
All the signs of our time are hidden behind the screen of the classic plot: bribery, arbitrariness, lawlessness. And although the viewer laughs throughout the performance, tearing his stomach, a revelation awaits him in the finale. It turns out that laughter is through tears.
The Inspector General is a play full of Gogol's devilish jokes and comic situations. The slightly updated material in the performance of the honored art worker of Ukraine Vyacheslav Zhily sounds bitingly and energetically in a new way. Recognizable characters, unambiguous hints - the truth in the production is closely mixed with a joke.
And, of course, on the stage of "The Inspector General" favorite artists - Lilia Rebrik, Alexey Vertinsky, Ksenia Vertinskaya, Vladimir Goryansky, Alexander Papusha, Valery Shalyga, Alexander Zhyla, Andrey Kronglevsky, Vitaly Azhnov, Petr Rusanenko, Vladislav Dmitruk.
The role of the mayor in the modern production will be played by the talented businessman Alexander Melamud, and the rogue-Khlestakov will be played by the young artist Daniil Marzhets.
