WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Inspired by the art, style and sensuality of Weimar Berlin, legendary director and choreographer Martha Clarke joins forces with the Atlantic to breathe new life into the original Marc Blitzstein translation, which premiered in 1954 at the Theatre de Lys, now the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Threepenny follows the charismatic scoundrel Macheath and his exploits in 19th century London. In this "opera for beggars," an assortment of characters maneuver for advantage, revealing a profoundly corrupt society and asking the question: Must one be a criminal to survive in this world?
