The Three Penny Opera

Crew
Directed by G. W. Pabst


Classic adaptation of Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill musical set in the 19th century London underworld. Mackie, the head of criminals falls in love with Polly, the daughter of Peachum, king of the beggars. Both Peachum and Mackie's mistress, Jenny, attempt to break up the happy couple and send Mackie to the gallows. A brilliant satire of crime & capitalism in which it is impossible to tell them apart. Pabst's stylized use of sets & lighting make this one of the only expressionist musicals.
