Nov 7, 2016

Bertold Brecht left Germany shortly after Hitler came to power in 1933.

But Brecht's dislike of Hitler waned little in self-exile, resulting in the play "The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui."  Audiences recognize a Hitler-like figure in Arturo Ui, a Chicago mobster trying to monopolize the cauliflower market.  Yes, cauliflower. 

Southern Oregon University's Department of Performing Arts brings Brecht's work to the stage in Ashland starting this week (November 10). 

Actor Connor Chaney (he plays Ui) and dramaturg Carlos-Zenen Trujillo visit to talk about the show.
