About this show

The Prince Myshkins, the Prop Thtr and the National Pastime Theater, present The Threepenny Opera featuring a dedicated cast of actors travelling from all over the U.S. to restage their acclaimed San Diego performance. Rick Burkhardt's new translation of Brecht's text reveals how relevant this play is to our age of military occupations and corporate opportunism, while the new, stripped-down orchestration of Weill's score brings out the surprising twists and turns of his music. Come to see what promises to be a precise, politically charged, hilarious and moving version of Brecht & Weill's incisive commentary on the interchangeability of business, crime, and love in contemporary civilization.
