The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

October 18 @ 2:00 pm

THE RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI

By Bertolt Brecht, translated and adapted by Bruce Norris
Directed by Ralph Janes

Experience what happens when a small-time mobster with ruthless ambition takes control of the gangster underworld in 1930s Chicago. Witness how Arturo Ui’s arrogance and self-importance have a savage effect—matching the rise of Nazism in Germany during the 1920s. This potent and timely satire, is, according to Brecht, not a play about Hitler, but rather a cautionary tale of “the complacency of the people who were able to resist him, but didn’t.”

General $23/ Senior, UWM Faculty & Staff $18/ Under 18 & University Students $13
