Theatre: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
This play by Bertolt Brecht is an odd fusion. Openly intended as a Roman Clef detailing Hitler's rise to power, while borrowing from gangster tropes and dialect (Ui is basically Al Capone meets Hitler), it's also written in Shakespearean blank verse and shows a certain influence from Julius Caesar.
