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.

Funny songs, good musicians. The writing is pretty light, not really a Woolly-caliber production. It's a pretty trad musical so the plot is predictable. People start off paired up with the wrong people and end up with the right people and there is never any doubt that it'll happen. But for light summer fare, it's worth the effort.

The play was enjoyable, the actors were great and the songs were really imaginative. At times the band was louder than the actors but it did not take away from the spectacular production. The play was a bit crass and not appropriate for all ages.
