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.

“The Ice Child is a must see for anyone willing to look upon a horrible, but easily conceivable slice of life. Be prepared to shift uncomfortably in your seat and feel the pressure of terror closing in on you. I promise, it’s fun!” —DC Metro Theatre Arts
Urban legend gets a shot of Edgar Allan Poe and a dash of contemporary horror in Factory 449’s world premiere of The Ice Child.
Catherine wakes to find herself imprisoned in a coffin-size freezer chest. To discover how she got there — and whether she can talk her way to freedom — she must quickly decide which of her captors to trust. Outside her makeshift prison, a struggle soon arises over Catherine’s treatment that will decide the fate of victims and villains alike. Told through a heart-pounding mash-up of film, live performance, and visual art, The Ice Child is a ticking time bomb of a show.
