In our fun and informative chat last night (Saturday) a few of you asked for more info on the production of THE THREEPENNY OPERA by the Jean Cocteau Rep. I saw this production last summer and it's well worth the trip to the Bowery. Great small theatre, live singing (NO SYNCHING) and NO, repeat, NO BODY MIKES!

This is the Brecht-Weill production,
Translated by Mar Blitzstein

This is the translation which opened nearly 50 years ago at the Theatre de Lys and played for over 2100 performances (that's nearly 5 years folks).

Here is what I found on their website.

Another reminder for another great evening of theatre!

A must see musical, classic score, good production, well sung, air conditioned theatre and NO AMPLIFICATION.

3PENNY OPERA was brought back for the summer and is playing now!

"Look! There goes Mack the Knife!"
