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 the George Mason University 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.

$30: Adults
$15: Students, Seniors and Youth up to grade 12

This performance will also be presented at the Center for the Arts on October 27, 28 and 29 at 8:00 pm, October 29 at 2:00 pm, and October 30 at 4:00 pm. Click here for details.
