Book & Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht

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.
