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.

Reviews & Ratings
Are your friendships based on tacit mutual agreements? If so, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and can’t believe his friend could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are? The tension and comedy build to an outrageous climax that leaves these three old friends with some very difficult decisions to make.
Art received the Moliere Award for Best Play, Best Production, and Best Author; the London Evening Standard award for Best Comedy; and the Tony Award for Best Play.
