The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

  • Olmsted Salon 209 East 16th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Original Music and Sound Design by Adrian Bridges in Lyra Theater's production THE RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI.


Days before a major election, a low-level campaign worker opens a mysterious envelope. What he discovers transforms his perspective on power and politics in America. In this volatile moment, Lyra Theater's relocated production of THE RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI asks what happens when democracy becomes a circus and a nation's imagination runs wild.
