Who can get ahead? Those with money do in Brecht and Weill’s landmark twentieth century musical, The Threepenny Opera. Echoing with the spirits of the German Music Hall style, this perennial Broadway favorite offers so much more than the popular “Mack the Knife”. Set in gritty 1920’s New York City, where prohibition is in effect but speakeasies are open and corruption abounds, the story follows the charismatic anti-hero Macheath and his exploits for power and wealth. The Fall Mason Musical presented by George Mason University’s School of Theater and School of Music is a social and political satire that will feature a dynamic ensemble performing multiple roles including inanimate objects.
