Its opening night of The Threepenny Opera at A Noise Within (ANW). Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s The Threepenny Opera debuted in Berlin in 1928. Threepenny is nothing short of a groundbreaking work of what is now termed Brechtian Theatre, in which the full use of theatricality is on display and the fourth wall is broken; the audience is aware they are watching a play, a reaction to a previous, more naturalistic approaches to stage works. When first produced, the musical challenged the audience’s notions of how songs could be used to tell a story, and the characters’ ostensible amorality was thought unworthy of expression in song. A Noise Within last produced The Threepenny Opera in 1997.
The cast of The Threepenny Opera features Andrew Abelson* as Macheath, Geoff Elliott* as Jonathan Jeremiah Peachum, Deborah Strang* as Mrs. Peachum, Marisa Duchowny* as Polly Peachum, Jeremy Rabb* as Jackie “Tiger” Brown, Abhimanyu Katyal as Reverend Kimball/Constable Smith, Stasha Surdyke* as Jenny, Maegan McConnell* as Lucy, E.K. Dagenfield as Filch, along with ensemble members. *Denotes member of Actors’ Equity
