I directed "The Bear" (NYC), "Wedding" (Chekhov) -- and "The Inspector General" (UAF). You see? Listed the mini-comedies by Chekhov as Gogol's.... Because all what Chekhov did, he wrote them for Gogol. Only with the Seagul, he broke away into the new drama.
"The Gamblers" -- on my wish list.

I consider Gogol to be a father of the Russian Drama.* 2005 mini-Chekhov *
I leave aside his prose. I never had any intentions for adapting it -- too good on the page, I do not want to cut anything.
Since I do not teach anything Russian, Gogol doesn't come into my zone -- and this is too bad.
First, because this dramatic technique is no less advanced than his prose.
Do you want to see how the well-made play looks like -- read The Inspector General.
I change it a bit, when I directed it as "Inve$tor General" -- as any masterpiece it's ready for interpretation. I might say it asks for it!
It's ready to be updated. Almost like the scripts by Shakespeare.
There are a few things which became antiquated, but the main treasure is still working -- the human nature expressed in the comedic dramatic mode!
And of course, the types and archetypes!
Let me repeat myself (from Film600 and script.vtheatre.net):
Where teaching and studying (research) meet --
Theme-thought, according to different playwrights (Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov and so on) and directors (Fillini, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Bergman pages).
Connections with other themes (list): family, gender and sex...
Finally, my own practical investigations: shows.vtheatre.net (only recently I began to make themes pages, Don Juan 2003, for example).
And the nonfiction (writing), of course: HIM, Father-Russia, PostAmeriKa, Self, POV, Tech (gatepages are in WRITE directory).
Yeah, yeah, there is more -- "philo" pages, metaphysics: in theatre theory directory, for instance (topics-bar: space, time and etc.)
Plus, Virtual Theatre and Book of Spectator!
Web? Oh, this is just medium. Like stage, screen, writing...
