The National Theatre, London

The Threepenny Opera, by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, will be showing at London's National Theatre from 18 May - 31 August 2016. From the National Theatre website: "London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night. Mack the Knife is back in town. A landmark of twentieth century musical theatre, The Threepenny Opera comes to the National Theatre in a bold new production. Simon Stephens’ vivid and darkly comic new translation of Brecht’s book and lyrics meets Kurt Weill’s extraordinary score. Rory Kinnear plays Macheath. Contains filthy language and immoral behaviour." For more details and tickets, see here:
