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

My boyfriend and I went to see the preview of this show last night.
The acting of all three of the cast is outstanding, the music is enrapturing and the play itself is very well written and produced. The cast, crew and director should all be applauded.
If you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining evening, I cannot recommend this show highly enough!
Quotes & Highlights
- “smart, tough and tenderhearted comedy” --<em>New York Times</em>
Written by Claudia Shear
In Dirty Blonde, the audience gets to see how carefully and confidently Mae West developed the extravagant, sexy, taboo-breaking public persona that was the hallmark of her fame. At the same time, this comedy explores the lives of two misfits who are her biggest fans. At once a love story, a musical and an amusing take on celebrity obsession, Dirty Blonde is a joyous celebration of Hollywood’s bawdy, groundbreaking female icon.
