(Sept. 13-Oct. 28) The Government Inspector
Washington’s Shakespeare Theatre Company kicks off its latest season tomorrow with what’s widely considered one of the funniest Russian plays ever written. Nikolai Gogol’s The Government Inspector will be the first Russian production to be presented on the Company’s stages. Gogol’s satire of provincial bureaucracy follows a close-to-broke civil servant as he travels to a small town where he’s mistaken for an incognito inspector.

(Sept. 12-22) To see or not to see?
The Folger Shakespeare Library is opening its new season with some actual Shakespeare. London-based Shakespeare’s Globe crosses the pond to present a stripped-down take on Hamlet through late September.

(Sept. 15-Oct. 6) Anna Bolena
Hamlet isn’t the only game in town when it comes to tragedies: The Washington National Opera welcomes a fresh season of productions with Anna Bolena at The Kennedy Center Saturday. A nasty king plots against his queen in Gaetano Donizetti’s classic Italian libretto.
