The University of Utah Department of Theatre will present "The Three Penny Opera," Nov. 7-23, 2014. This musical is a political and social satire about the corruption of humanity and a sharp critique of Capitalism. Brutal, scandalous, yet humorous and with a happy ending, "The Three Penny Opera" is a landmark of modern drama that inspired such subsequent hits as Cabaret and Chicago, and includes one of the most popular songs of the century, "The Ballad of Mack the Knife."

In a morally corrupt society, who is the bigger criminal -- the man who robs the bank, or the man who founds the bank? Enter a seamy underworld of salacious cynicism and merry anarchy filled with beggars, hoodlums and prostitutes. At the center of it all perches antihero Macheath—lover, arsonist, rapist, murderer, and criminal mastermind. "Mack" seems to have everything under his control until he marries Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of beggars. Things go awry when her peeved patriarch does everything in his power to imprison and hang his new son-in-law. Brutal, scandalous, yet humorous and with a happy ending, The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama that inspired such subsequent hits as Cabaret and Chicago, and includes one of the most popular songs of the century, "The Ballad of Mack the Knife." Recommended for patrons ages 8 and up. Children under four years of age, including babes in arms, will not be admitted. Visit kingsburyhall.utah.edu for information.
