No Theater presents google gogol, inspired by Nikolai Gogol’s Ревизор, (Revizor - The Government Inspector), the 19th Century comedy about how the corrupt officials of a small Russian town, headed by the Mayor, react with terror to the news that an incognito inspector (the revizor) will soon be arriving in their town to investigate them.

No Theater rarely performs locally. During the 70s and 80s they regularly performed on Thornes Third Floor such original works as The Elephant Man, DFS (de fiance suction), Last Resort, and Dupe. Their most recent local production was Richard Maxwell’s Cave Man, which previewed here for several months before its run in New York. No Theater’s work has been performed throughout Europe and also in Japan and Australia.

The cast of google gogol includes Barton Byg, James Emery, Tony Giardina, Charles Holt, Jane Karakula, Tom Mahnken, Tom Schieding, Peter Schmitz, and Sheena See. Directed by Roy Faudree. No Theater is in residence at APE the month of March creating the new work.
