Dueling Critics take on Arturo Ui

On Thursday's Eight Forty-Eight, we discussed real-life Chicago mobsters.
Friday, we talked about the fictional variety.

The play The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui was written by German dramatist Bertolt Brecht while in exile in Finland, and set in a city he'd never been to: Chicago.

It's on stage now at Steep Theater in Lakeview, and the Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman tell us whether we should resist Arturo or not.
