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.

I could (and just may) go see this play again. It is a brilliant piece of writing: intelligent, witty, and moving. The protagonist, Arnold, who is extraordinarily well-played to the point the actor IS Arnold, will win your heart. This is a piece of theatre that is enormously entertaining and, and the same time, so very insightful as to the fact that gay people are still people, with many of the same dreams, hopes, and issues the rest of us have - plus challenges that the rest of us who are considered more mainstream do not suffer. But, sexuality aside,, Torch Song Trilogy is simply a great play, and the cast does a fabulous job with it. Do not miss it while it is here in DC, and done so well.
Torch Song Trilogy stars Brandon Uranowitz (Broadway’s Baby, It’s You) as Arnold, with Obie Award winner Gordana Rashovich (Roundabout’s The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore) as Ma and Todd Lawson (The New Group’s One Arm, Broadway’s Summer and Smoke) as Ed. The production also features Alex Mills, last seen at Studio in 2ndStage’s 2-2 Tango, as Alan and Helen Hayes Award nominee Sarah Grace Wilson (Studio’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie) as Laurel. Rounding out the cast are newcomer Michael Lee Brown as David and Ashleigh King (Studio 2ndStage’s The Rocky Horror Show) as Lady Blues.
This show runs three and a half hours.
