The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui Der aufhaltsame Aufstieg des Arturo Ui was written by the great German dramatist Bertolt Brecht over the course of furious weeks in while a refugee in Helsinki Finland A dizzyingly intelligent political satire on the ir resistibleness of political thuggery Arturo Ui satirizes the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany by dressing it up as the gangster film we thought we knew In Arturo Ui the metamorphosis of thug to politician through corruption intimidation and all manner of brutality is thinly masked by a Chicago gangland epic where the young Arturo Ui stages a violent takeover of the green grocer trade, i The Threepenny Opera i was Brecht s first and greatest commercial success and it remains one of his best loved and most performed plays Based on John Gay s eighteenth century i Beggar s Opera i the play is set in Victorian England s Soho but satirizes the bourgeois society of the Weimar Republic through its wry love story of Polly Peachum and Mack the Knife Macheath With Kurt Weill s music which was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz into the theater it became a popular hit throughout the Western world br p Commissioned and authorized by the Brecht estate Arcade s definitive edition contains the acclaimed translation by Ralph Manheim and John Willett that was first staged at the York Theatre Royal and subsequently at Lincoln Center in New York Willett and Manheim the joint editors of Brecht s complete dramatic work in English also provide Brecht s own notes and discarded songs as well as extensive editorial commentary on the genesis of the play p, Few authors have had such a dramatic effect as Bertolt Brecht His work has helped to shape a generation of writers theatergoers and thinkers His plays are studied worldwide as texts that changed the face of theater The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a parable inspired by the Chinese play Chalk Circle Written at the close of World War II the story is set in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia It retells the tale of King Solomon and a child claimed by and fought over by two mothers But this chalk circle is metaphorically drawn around a society misdirected in its priorities Brecht s statements about class are cloaked in the innocence of a fable that whispers insistently to the audience br br No translations of Brecht s work are as reliable and compelling as Eric Bentley s These versions are widely viewed as the standard renderings of Brecht s work ensuring that future generations of readers will come in close contact with the work of a playwright who introduced a new way of thinking about the theater, Considered by many to be one of Brecht s masterpieces i Galileo i explores the question of a scientist s social and ethical responsibility as the brilliant Galileo must choose between his life and his life s work when confronted with the demands of the Inquisition Through the dramatic characterization of the famous physicist Brecht examines the issues of scientific morality and the difficult relationship between the intellectual and authority This version of the play is the famous one that was brought to completion by Brecht himself working with Charles Laughton who played Galileo in the first two American productions Hollywood and New York Since then the play has become a classic in the world repertoire The play which most strongly stamped on my mind a sense of Brecht s great stature as an artist of the modern theatre was Galileo Harold Clurman Thoughtful and profoundly sensitive Newsweek
