In this adaptation of John Gays 18th century hit musical satire, The Beggars Opera, Bertolt Brecht sets the story of Mack the Knife to the jazz sounds of Kurt Weill. The Threepenny Opera was a sendup of 20th century commerce, and in 1961 became the longest running Off-Broadway musical with 2611 performances. Keeping Weills music, director Richard Palmer has reset the play for a satirical look at the 21st century business world.
