This fall Theatre In the Raw presents The Threepenny Opera, Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill’s classic work of 1928, under the direction of Jay Hamburger and music director Earle Peach. Brecht and Weill turned to John Gay’s 18th-century The Beggar’s Opera to fashion this savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality. Set in Commercial Drive-like Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of the handsome flirtatious outlaw known as Mack the Knife. A secret marriage, an underworld boss, betrayal, prison and a sentence to death are the elements that lead to a menacing finale of ferocious irony.
