PSU Theatre: The Threepenny Opera
The Threepenny Opera tells the tale of Macheath, A.K.A. Mack the Knife, a lady’s man of ill-repute and knavery who will stop at nothing to get what he wants when he wants it. Raw intensity, rough reality, and unflinching honesty are hallmarks of this masterpiece that combines epic and musical theatre. Created by two theatrical masters of the 20th century, Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, The Threepenny Opera, which gave us the pop hit “Mack the Knife,” offers insights into the underside of life to which, one way or another, even the most noble and honest of us may fall prey.
