Lawrence Arts Center "Threepenny Opera" review by Deborah Hirsch
If you prefer your musical satire driven by an anti-hero, then you

Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill's most durable collaboration, The Threepenny Opera, the still-vital 1928 work now onstage at the Lawrence Arts Center in a well-executed, enjoyable production.
