WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Mack the Knife is back in town! The MAX Theatre transforms into London's gritty underworld in this 1928 parody of A Beggar's Opera. The haves clash with the have-nots while MacHeath, the ultimate sneering antihero, perches in the middle of the storm. A brilliant masterpiece of epic theater, Brecht's sharp critique of Capitalism originated the popular songs "The Ballad of Mack the Knife," "Soloman Song" and "Pirate Jenny." With its haunting jazz score, acid harmonies and biting lyrics, The Threepenny Opera influenced Cabaret and Urinetown. Now, Signature revives the juicily audacious musical that started it all.
