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.

Good play and well acted.
Went to pick up tickets and Box Office could not find the Goldstar tickets. After fumbling for about 10-15 minutes of looking for their boss, the 2 Box Office people told us to go directly to the theater space where it was being performed and speak to manager there. He seated us. Problem solved. Theater is accident waiting to happen with folding chairs and no railing or anything solid to hold on to while navigating steps. Also long time to sit without stretch break.
This show contains adult themes and explicit language.
