The Threepenny Opera serves up a deliciously dark satire of "respectable" society, with dashing thieves, saucy prostitutes, and lingering melodies. Based on Elizabeth Hauptmann's German translation of John Gay's eighteenth-century The Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera thursts the audience into the seedy underworld of Mack the Knife, a dapper criminal and his wry love affair with Polly Peachum. Jim Dale, Alan Cumming, Cyndi Lauper, Ana Gasteyer, and Nellie McKay lead the cast in this new Broadway production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's classic. Scott Elliott directs.
