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

Went to the 2pm Sunday showing and had a great time. The three actors are very talented and engaging, Kevin with his radio announcer voice, Martin with his facial expressions and Colin with his George Constanza dry, droll humor. The first half, they go through the litany of BHC, beloved holiday classic movies and shows, you will recognize them all. Then the second half, they go through both It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol at the same time. Then they end the show with a song of our old fave holiday songs. Was a little slow in some parts and engaging audience participation in others. Was a fun afternoon.
Street parking only, metered.

Quotes & Highlights
- “The actors in this play were so funny, their timing so impeccably perfect, that they literally killed three-quarters of the audience, whose bodies have already been donated to science for the study of comedy's lethal effects.”<em>—Metro</em>
- <em>Every Christmas Story Ever Told</em> was a Goldstar ROAR award winner in 2008.
Join San Jose Stage Company as they once again tackle this fast-moving, irreverent comedy that takes holiday cheer to the extreme! Every Christmas Story Ever Told is a fond and furious look at the holiday classics and traditions we all remember, and some we would like to forget. From a non-religious version of Silent Night to a non-copyrighted version of Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer—renamed Gustav the Green-nosed Reingoat—as well as tributes to Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch and It’s A Wonderful Life, no pop culture holiday icon is spared in this whirlwind of holiday merriment.
