Fans of soul-crushing, sardonic Russian political drama, rejoice! (Or whatever it is those people do.) Nikolai Gogol's celebrated satire The Inspector General comes to life at Pittsburgh Playwrights, staged by Throughline Theatre Company. The play tells the story of a corrupt small-town government sent into a frenzy of paranoia after learning an anonymous "inspector" is visiting to investigate funny business. As one might expect from Russian drama, there's a lot of dark humor, pointed absurdity, and fourth-wall breaking. Pittsburgh favorite Connor McCanlus directs.
