The Threepenny Opera - Off-Broadway

Atlantic Theater Company presents the off-Broadway revival of Brecht and Weill's musical.


Threepenny follows the charismatic scoundrel Macheath and his exploits in 19th century London. In this “opera for beggars,” an assortment of characters maneuver for advantage, revealing a profoundly corrupt society and asking the question: Must one be a criminal to survive in this world?
