The Nose is a whimsical family musical by Kit Goldstein Grant. After his nose jumps off his face and masquerades around St. Petersburg as a high-ranking official, Kovalyov is sent on a crazy journey to regain his sniffer and his social position.

Based on Nikolai Gogol's beloved tale, The Nose entertains with Russian-flavored music and family-friendly humor, while featuring themes and lessons that resonate from Imperial Russia to modern-day America.  

After premiering at the Midtown International Theatre Festival, where it was nominated for Best Musical, The Nose has continued on to play at the 1,300 seat Master Theatre, and in South Africa at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, The Drama Factory & Artscape Arena Stage in Cape Town.

The Nose is a Directors' Choice Award Winner with MainStreet Musicals.

The Nose is available in English or in Russian translation.

The Nose is available for licensing.
