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.

_The Sound of Music _
Music by Richard Rogers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Celebrate the golden anniversary of this iconic musical with timeless standards including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
- Winner of numerous Tony Awards in 1959, including Best Musical and Best Actress for the original lead, Mary Martin, The Sound Of Music returned to Broadway in 1998 for a 15-month run.
- Set in Salzburg, Austria in the months leading up to World War II, the musical follows the story of the rebellious novice Maria who leaves the abbey to govern the rambunctious Von Trapp children. As she wins the family over with music and kindness, the peaceful world of the Von Trapps’ is interrupted by the encroaching Nazi regime.
