Book & Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht
Music by Kurt Weill

Directed by Calvin MacLean

“The greatest musical of all time.” ~ Newsweek

With a haunting jazz score and biting lyrics, the “haves” clash with the “have-nots” in Brecht’s sharp critique of Capitalism. This brilliant masterpiece of epic theater originated the popular songs The Ballad of Mack the Knife, Soloman Song and Pirate Jenny.

For mature audiences. Contains strong language.
