Before Cabaret, before Urinetown, there was the first dark, adult masterpiece of musical theater: The Threepenny Opera. Written in 1928, Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's satire of "respectable" society has not loosened its powerful grip on the imagination. Incorporating a sharply political perspective and the jazzy sound of '20s Berlin cabaret, The Threepenny Opera turned an old-fashioned opera into a piece that remains absolutely relevant today. Following the trail of broken hearts and slashed throats left by the dashing and dastardly Macheath, the show incorporates immortal musical numbers like "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny." San Jose Stage Company, the Bay Area's premier off-Broadway theater, presents this theatrical milestone in a production that's just as fresh and as daring as the original. Learn More

The cast was great, showing a lot of talent as they switched from one character to another. The music at times was distracting. The story line was clever, entertaining, thought provoking and educational. The profanity was over done and did not add to the show.
