    Last Chance To See Henry Goodman's Performance Of A Lifetime In The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui

    The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui will end its run as scheduled at the Duchess Theatre on Saturday 7th December 2013. Following a hugely successful run at the Chichester Festival Theatre last year, the production transferred to the West End in September.

    The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui is Bertolt Brecht’s epic savagely funny parable of the rise of Hitler.  Henry Goodman gives the performance of a lifetime in the title role and has won great critical acclaim for his portrayal. He is joined by Keith Baxter, Michael Feast, William Gaunt and Joe McGann.
     
    The cast also includes: Mark Carlisle, Alex Giannini, Amanda Gordon, Charlie Hamblett, Lucas Hare, Hugh John, Richard Mark, Lizzy McInnerny, Peter Moreton, Steve Simmonds, Colin Stinton, David Sturzaker and Benny Young.
     
    Henry Goodman was most recently seen in the Old Vic’s production of The Winslow Boy. Just a few of his theatre credits include: Yes, Prime Minister (Chichester Festival Theatre and West End), Fiddler on the Roof (Sheffield Crucible and West End) and Chicago (Adlephi). For the RCS Henry has appeared in: Richard III, The Comedy of Errors and Henry VIII. His credits for the National Theatre include: Shylock in The Merchant of Venice and Guys and Dolls.
     
    ‘Chicago in the 1930s, the Great Depression – a time of unemployment, fear and corruption and the perfect time for a small-fry crime boss and his henchmen to make it big, to seize a greater power, an absolute power. Arturo Ui and his mob of gangsters run protection rackets for both workers and businesses. Soon Ui’s menacing shadow looms large, from the markets, to the docks and across the city itself.’
