Arts Partner: Classic Stage Company
“The eight ensemble members here are delightfully resourceful. You could even imagine this version of Arturo Ui winning the flinty heart of its author for its imaginative interpretation of the Brechtian dictates of style and sensibility.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
★★★★ “You laugh at him, you fear him, you realize you know him. You certainly can’t resist him” – Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
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 production directed by John Doyle. Written in 1941, the play was one of the Berliner Ensemble’s greatest box office successes.
The run time of this show is 2 hours and 10 minutes, with one intermission.
**Please Note: There is no late seating. There is no re-entry once the performance has begun.**
