Signature Theatre puts its own stamp on this dark masterpiece of musical theater. Written in 1928 by Bertolt Brecht, with music by Kurt Weill, The Threepenny Opera skewers capitalist society while following dashing criminal anithero Macheath as he leaves a trail of broken hearts and slashed throats throughout the London underworld. The unforgettable score's highlighted by "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny," and juiced by the jazzy sounds of '20s-era Berlin, while the innovative epic modernism of the work went on to influence the creators of acclaimed musicals like Cabaret and Urinetown.

Part of the 2007 Shakespeare in Washington festival
Synetic’s silent Hamlet won three Helen Hayes awards and became something of a calling card for the company. Now Synetic offers a take on yet another great Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth—the dark, brooding tale of a husband and wife whose ambition and lust for power sends them into an unescapable swirl of murder, madness and self-destruction. Synetic’s signature blend of dance, movement and music will cast new light on the universal struggles and themes of one of Shakespeare’s most complex works, told through the art of silence.
