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 was a very delightful evening. I have been to the GL G&S society performances before, and sometimes they are uneven, but thisTrial by Jury was excellent, and the followup review was truly a romp. Alumni from past shows had flown in to perform, and the repertoire included some a good variety of G& S songs, some performed faithfully to the original version, some a vehicle for parody. There was even an audience participation game! There were truly excellent voices performing in the review, consistently. and the audience demand several encores, which the group responded to. I loved it!
