The Threepenny Opera

“Smart, sardonic and utterly entertaining.”

– Madison Capital Times


The Threepenny Opera

by Bertolt Brecht

music by Kurt Weill

English adaptation by: Marc Blitzstein

directed by Valerie Joyce

April 14th – 26th, 2015

 A masterpiece of modern theatre, Bertolt Brecht's biting critique of capitalism explodes with colorful characters, gritty London streetscapes, and toe-tapping tunes like "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny." A sensational spin on the 18th-century Beggar’s Opera, Brecht & Weill’s groundbreaking musical tells the tale of MacHeath, London’s most notorious criminal, as he pursues the woman he loves while dodging the police and London bourgeoisie. Around him an assortment of corrupt characters maneuver for advantage, begging the question: must one be a criminal to survive in this world? “The granddaddy of all the singing, stinging portraits of fat societies on their eves of destruction” – The New York Times.
