"Oh the shark has pretty teeth, dear..."
Under the veneer of musical comedy, Brecht and Weill serve up a wickedly ironic satire, deliciously apt for today's economic climate of bail-outs and bonuses. Originally produced on Broadway in 1933, this groundbreaking musical plunges its audience into a world of greed and graft, where organized crime and prostitution serve as toothsome metaphors for a political system gone belly-up.
