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.

Seats were unassigned when we purchased them and ended up being less than ideal.
Seating aside, the acting was outstanding and the sets really well done. The play itself was pretty dark, but, well, that was the point.
book by Doug Wright,
music by Scott Frankel,
lyrics by Michael Korie
directed by Serge Seiden
starring Barbara Walsh and featuring Barbara Broughton, Bobby Smith and Jenna Sokolowski.
The Studio Theatre’s _Grey Gardens _will reinvent the world of this musical by uniting the two acts of the play through production and design, creating a cohesive world for both the glittering 1941 Grey Gardens and its decaying 1975 counterpart. With no seat more than eight rows from the stage, the audience will have the chance to experience this xtraordinary production up close with the actors singing without enhanced amplification. From Russell Metheny’s daring set to Alex Jaeger’s gorgeous costumes, the world of this Grey Gardens will come to new life for those who love the Maysles’ documentary,for those who love the musical and for those who just love theatre.
