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 is definitely worth seeing. Both because the stories and music are good and engaging (if a bit predictable) and because this was a much better production than I had expected from a non-Equity theater. Indeed some of the performers were fabulous. So fabulous that I will watch for where next I can see/hear them. Unfortunately, the performance level was not uniform with some of the actors/singers being fairly mediocre.
