The Threepenny Opera

It was Bertolt Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera that first introduced the world to Kurt Weill’s swinging hit “Mack the Knife,” later popularized by pop singer Bobby Darin. The musical follows the song’s title character, a charismatic criminal, as he struggles with his father-in-law—a man grown wealthy by protecting and exploiting the city’s population of beggars. As it careens through a Victorian London infected by the jazzy sounds of the seamy cabarets common to Brecht and Weill’s own era, the plot veers knowingly from melodrama to satire to outrageously creaky deus ex machina.

San Jose Stage Company

San Jose Stage Company—hailed as "the company that never says never" by Stark Insider and one of "Ten small Bay Area theater companies you should know" by the San Jose Mercury News—has been producing and premiering works of explosive power and social resonance since 1983. Professional actors fill the stage with new and classic works by the likes of David Mamet and Neil LaBute every year, but the company’s work extends beyond its intimate theater space—whose capacity of 200 ensures no one gets a bad seat or, probably, runs into the evil twin they haven’t met yet. Programming spills into the streets of San Jose in events that have included indie hip-hop concerts, art-walk performances, and partnerships with smaller theater groups and high-school drama classes.
