The highly anticipated Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's hard-edged classic The Threepenny Opera will run at Studio 54 from March 24th through June 11th.
"The Threepenny Opera serves up a deliciously dark satire of 'respectable; society, with dashing thieves, saucy prostitutes, and lingering melodies. Based on Elizabeth Hauptmann's German translation of John Gay's eighteenth-century The Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera thrusts the audience into the seedy underworld of Mack the Knife, a dapper criminal and his wry love affair with Polly Peachum," state production notes. Originally produced in Germany, The Threepenny Opera premiered on Broadway at the Empire Theatre on April 13, 1933 and received a historic off-Broadway production (with Weill's wife Lotte Lenya as Jenny) from 1955 to 1961. The most recent Broadway revival (starring Sting and Maureen McGovern) opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on November 5th, 1989. The Threepenny Opera's design team will comprise Derek McLane (sets), Isaac Mizrahi (costumes), and Jason Lyons (lighting).
The Threepenny Opera tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 or online at www.roundabouttheatre.org. The show will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM. Tickets are $36.25 - $111.25.
