BWW Reviews: New Line Theatre's Sinister and Sizzling THE THREEPENNY OPERABWW Reviews: New Line Theatre's Sinister and Sizzling THE THREEPENNY OPERA
by Chris Gibson - Jun 13, 2015

Originally adapted from John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera" with a writing collective Bertolt Brecht had formed, The Threepenny Opera, with Brecht's lyrics brought to life by Kurt Weill's inspired musical compositions, is a dark look at the underworld, oozing with depravity, and filled with a sense of desperation, neatly leavened by a sharpened satirical edge. New Line Theatre gives us this stage noir classic with all its wickedness intact. It's a pitch-black masterpiece that sucks you in with its nightmarish charms. This is the Marc Bliztstein translation, and I only mention that because there have been numerous attempts at re-imagining the work over the years. New Line Theatre gives us the Brecht/Weill collaboration I've imagined in my mind after only hearing select musical pieces, and watching a fuzzy copy of G.W. Pabst's 1931 film. This is true art, and a show that you absolutely need to see! (more...)
