Racketeering. Violence. Riches. Power.

Catch this classic play with a timeless theme.

Arturo Ui is a tale of the meteoric rise of a small-time Brooklyn hoodlum who takes over the Cauliflower racket in 1930’s Chicago. Ui ruthlessly disposes of his competitors to enrich himself and gain power. Both entertaining and provocative, this play is a powerful parable to Hitler’s rise to power in Germany. It also speaks to members of our government who aim to seize more power and control over us. Don’t miss this spellbinding play, which depicts evil fascism on the march while exploring the dark sides of human nature.

CAST: Robert Sheire, Joe Palka, Kim Curtis, Lee Ordeman, David Johnson, Anne Nottage, John Gerard Healy, Scott Bennett, Robert McNamara, Eli El, Gori Olofun, Leo Delgado, Michael Miyazaki and Caroline Johnson.
