Mack the Knife
--Robbie Williams

Oh the shark baby has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack knife has Mac Heath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight

When the shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears Macheath, dear
So there's not a trace of red

On the sidewalk, oh Sunday morning don't you know
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Could that be our boy Mack the knife?

Are you singing along yet? You might try to get it out of your head before you go to the actual performance. Audience participation is not encouraged.

The Threepenny Opera is a biting satire of the post-war rise of capitalism, organized crime, and a timeless tale of how the poor struggle to survive. 

Kurt Weill's jazzy score provides a thrilling backdrop to this tale of debauchery and deception. 

Based on The Beggar’s Opera, Threepenny Opera recounts the legend of Macheath (Mack the Knife), a charming and deadly crime lord on the verge of turning his illegal empire into a legitimate business. 

When Macheath secretly marries young Polly Peachum, her father is enraged, and an electrifying and breathless journey begins through the rotting underworld of London. Based on Simon Stephen’s brilliant translation for the English National Theater (2016), this production transforms an iconic theater classic into a tale that will thrill and excite!
