The Threepenny Opera

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 7:30-9:30 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays, 2-4 p.m. Continues through Nov. 23 2014

Enter a seamy underworld of salacious cynicism and merry anarchy filled with beggars, hoodlums and prostitutes. This brilliant musical is a political and social satire about the corruption of humanity and a sharp critique of Capitalism. Brutal, scandalous, yet humorous and with a happy ending, The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama that inspired such subsequent hits as Cabaret and Chicago, and includes one of the most popular songs of the century, “The Ballad of Mack the Knife.”
