About The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui:

In 1930s Chicago, mobster Arturo Ui will stop at nothing to control the cauliflower trade. Terror and bloodshed follow. Can anyone stop him? Brecht’s skewering of Adolf Hitler and totalitarianism is given renewed significance in a new Classic Stage Company production. Written in 1941, the play was one of the Berliner Ensemble’s greatest box office successes.

Our The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui Review

You know, if Classic Stage Company isn’t careful, it’s going to get a reputation. First there was the epic performance of Marin Ireland in Summer and Smoke, then Anika Noni Rose soaring above the crowd in Carmen Jones, and now Raúl Esparza, throwin' down in The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. CSC has seriously raised the bar.
