'Threepenny Opera' brings renewed decadence to Studio 54'

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Threepenny Opera?

The classic musical by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill returns to Broadway with an all-star cast.

Tony Award winner Alan Cumming is back at Studio 54, where he triumphed as the Emcee in Cabaret, to play Mack the Knife in one of the greatest hits to every shake up the world of musical theater. Joining the dream cast is 80s pop sensation Cyndi Lauper and rising recording artist Nellie McKay. Scott Elliott, who recently helmed the off-Broadway hit Hurlyburly and this season's Barefoot in the Park, directs.

Welcome to the underworld of foggy London town. Here the cops are corrupt, pickpockets and prostitutes rule and Mack the Knife presides as the dapper prince of thieves. Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's mesmerizing homage to the seedy side of life returns to Broadway with a spectacular cast and a provacative new translation by Wallace Shawn (Aunt Dan and Lemon).

Take a walk on the dark side this spring at Studio 54!
