“The greatest musical of all time.” – Newsweek
Brecht and Weill’s The Threepenny Opera is one of the best-loved pieces of musical theatre from the 20th century. Set in the seedy underbelly of Victorian London, the show brings us into a world of starving beggars, conniving hookers, and ruthless criminals and tells the wry love story of Polly Peachum and “Mack the Knife.”
