Celebrate the Kurt Weill centenary with the return of the acclaimed original American cast recording of The Threepenny Opera starring Lotte Lenya! And don't miss the bonus track-an unreleased recording of Lenya singing Mack the Knife accompanied by Marc Blitzstein on piano! Go Unlimited. It's hard to believe, but this Brecht/Weill adaptation of John Gay's "Beggar's Opera" failed miserably in its first New York production in 1933. In 1954 Marc Blitzstein took the home of Pirate Jenny, Tiger Brown, and "Mack the Knife" and put it in a downtown theater, whereupon it took off (and kick-started the Off-Broadway trend).

Die Dreigroschenoper, Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's radical reinterpretation of John Gay's eighteenth century operetta The Beggar's Opera, was a sensation in Europe after its German premiere in 1928. But the show, with its decadent portrait of the underworld, was less appealing to Americans when it appeared as The Threepenny Opera on Broadway in 1933 and became a quick flop. It took another 21 years and a new English adaptation by Marc Blitzstein for The Threepenny Opera to succeed in New York.

The Threepenny Opera resists virtue admirably. -New York Times, 1956. the tone of these troubled times. the kind of theater that shakes up an audience. -Chicago Daily Herald, 2008. With Brecht's cuttingly satirical look at the meaning of morality in a society populated by gangsters, beggars, prostitutes and corrupt cops, and Weill's edgy, opera-meets-cabaret score. this show was all but irresistible
