The Threepenny Opera
Under the direction of Artistic Director Josh Short, this dark and hilarious tale of a corrupt society plagued by Capitalism and self-interests follows the notorious criminal Macheath (David Tessier) as he marries Polly (Christine Dickinson), the young daughter of the charismatic Jonathan J. Peachum (Tom Gleadow) leader of the city's beggars and all around bad guy. Turned in by one-time lover turned prostitute Jenny (Karen Carpenter) and forced to elude capture by crooked sheriff Jackie "Tiger" Brown, (Brien Lang), Mac and his gang set off a course of actions that without some divine intervention, are sure to end badly.  

A brilliant masterpiece of epic and musical theater, Bertolt Brecht's "Threepenny Opera" is a trailblazing musical spectacle of fierce social and political critique. With its haunting jazz score by Kurt Weill, acid harmonies and biting lyrics, "The Threepenny Opera" would go on to influence the writing of such hits as Cabaret and Urinetown in years to come.

"Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's seminal 1928 critique of capitalism, self-interest and the bourgeoisie suits ... the tone of these troubled times ... the kind of theater that shakes up an audience."
-Chicago Daily Herald

"The greatest musical of all time."

"A distinguished and delightful work of art, striking, sardonic, original, humorous and always interesting."
-New York Post
