Dueling Critics: The U.N. Inspector

SHARE Dueling Critics: The U.N. Inspector

Michael Fitzgerald Murphy is a hack looking to make a quick buck on land deals in a former Soviet republic. But through a case of mistaken identity, the corrupt local officials think he's an inspector from the United Nations. They somehow believe he's come to check on the fledgling democracy's progress. Instead of coming clean, Murphy revels in the gifts, women, and 5-star treatment being thrown at him.

It's Next Theater's The U.N. Inspector, a new reworking of the Russian classic The Government Inspector by Nicolai Gogol. Here to review this comedy of errors are Eight Forty-Eight's Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman.
