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.

Chicago opened at the 46th Street Theatre in June 1975, with a cast that included Gwen Verdon (Roxie), Chita Rivera (Velma) and Jerry Orbach (Billy). Although the show enjoyed a run of 898 performances, it was overshadowed by the popularity of A Chorus Line, which opened the same year. Chicago remained one of Broadway’s most underappreciated gems until 1997, when it was revived on Broadway with choreography by Ann Reinking “in the style of Bob Fosse.” This production went on to win 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Lighting Design, Best Choreography and Best Direction of a Musical.
