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.

About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage
Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater’s horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.
The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They’ve nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
