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.

We enjoyed hearing all of the old Broadway tunes by the band. They did a quality job. It was difficult to hear the vocalists at times, but the rendition of Memories was very moving. The narrator was a bit boring, but well worth the price of the ticket and convenient not to have to travel to DC.
Take a stroll down Broadway’s memory lane with Holly Bingham, Steve Cramer and the City of Fairfax Band as they celebrate some of the most popular songs and scores ever written for musical theatre — from glorious show tunes of Broadway’s past, to a modern mix of heartbreakingly beautiful Broadway music including Guys and Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof, South Pacific, Les Miserables, Wicked, and more.
