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.

My Garmin GPS did not recognize the address of the Bowie Playhouse, though it did have an address for it when I looked up Bowie Playhouse. Maybe there has been a recent address chnage. It took some doing for a stranger to find the Bowie Playhouse, way off the beaten path....travel • Aug 19 2013 star this tip starred

Highly energetic and imaginative performance of this comedy classic, set in the 1950s (everyone smokes!). Diction and phrasing are wonderful by all actors, but especially by the main characters, so even a non-Shakespeare enthusiast can understand what is going on. Lots of genuinely funny moments, and some really great costumes. Recommend!
