Bertolt Brecht's satire is a mash-up of American gangster movies and Richard III, offering a searing
allegory on Adolf Hitler's rise to power through the grimy lens of 1930's Chicago.

conservative politics in the 21st Century.
"Director Phil Rouse is definitely making his mark as a director to watch."
