I am very excited to get to work on The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, produced by Cave Theatre Co. and going up October 6-16 at Under St. Mark's. Mirroring scenes from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Richard III, and Macbeth, Bertolt Brecht uses the tale of the rise of a Chicago gangster to comment on the rise of the Nazi Party -- with newfound relevance amidst the impending November election.
This Brecht-gangster-Shakespeare-Hitler fever dream promises outrageous comedy and character acting at its finest. With over 40 characters played by 8 actors, I will be responsible for some eight characters (Clark, Young Dogsborough, Dockdaisy, Bowl, The Actor, Ignatius Dullfeet, and several Grocers).
