Treat yourself to a delightful dinner followed by a brilliant play.
Bertolt Brecht: genius or charlatan? The question is answered in a piece of pure Epic theatre featuring 15 new songs and choreography. The story is told through the eyes of Brecht’s most significant collaborator, Elizabeth Hauptmann who is now reputed to have written at least 80% of The Threepenny Opera. In her lifetime she was denied credit and reward. The setting is Berlin: Sin City during the vibrant decade of the Weimar Republic when Brecht and Kurt Weill were the enfants terrible on the cultural scene.
It’s a bold and exciting musical, one that manages to recapture some of the magic of the era and just enough Brechtian cabaret sensibilities to keep the timely and relevant issues of the piece from being solely a historical point of note. An experience well worth your time.
