About this show

"What's a greater crime? Robbing a bank or founding one?" So asks Mack the Knife in The Threepenny Opera. This great wake-up call to the world is a mash-up of cabaret, opera, biting satire, Berlin dance bands, and acid harmonies. Intended as a lark, it became one of the great theatrical earthquakes of the 20th century. Populated by whores, beggars and thieves, cutthroat capitalists and capitalist cutthroats, The Threepenny Opera changed musical theatre history forever.
