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.

This play is extremely dark, and I wouldn't recommend it if you can relate to the theme and/or get depressed easily. My partner, who saw the play with me and is very similar to the overworked protagonist, wished she'd never seen it. We were hoping the play would make light of his situation, or at least have some good advice to take away, but it was mostly just incredibly bleak.
That said, the play itself is well written and well performed. It's emotionally stirring and it gives you a taste of modern London. One of the actors had a tendency to stumble over his lines, but the other members of the 5-person cast were very good. I would recommend How to Disppear Completely with a caveat that you be prepared to feel compltely hopeless afterward.

“… part expressionistic psychodrama, part dystopian adventure tale…” —Los Angeles Times
