Thursday - Friday 8 p.m. Saturday 2 & 8 p.m. Sunday 2 p.m. , Friday March 08 | $30 adult, $19 non-UC students, $17 UC students.

CCM’s groundbreaking Kurt Weill Festival continues. Set in an anachronistic Victorian London realized by Tony Award-winning guest scenic designer John Arnone, this is a work of epic theatre, challenging conventional notions of property and theatre. Part satire, part shock effects, part aesthetic innovation, part moral indictment and part sheer theatrical diversion, The Threepenny Opera asks a still-relevant question: “Who is the bigger criminal: the man who robs a bank or the man who founds one?” Deeply influenced by jazz, its opening lament, “Mack the Knife,” has become a standard recorded by Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé and countless others. $12 student rush tickets available for Saturday matinee performance at 1 p.m. day of show.
