The Threepenny Opera

 Self-conscious theatricality …

First of all, Happy Birthday, Rebecca.

Nice to visit with  you on the phone where we can catch up on what we have seen last via BBC live streaming, or what we want to see next -- which for you is The Threepenny Opera.

So here is your birthday gift:  a sneak peak at what others are saying about the show.

I went out to see the official trailer from National Three Live. They catch the flavour of the show that we saw live in Victoria.

Claire Allfree writes a review in The Telegraph.

Susannah Clapp reviews the show for The Guardian.

Michael Billington also writes for the The Guardian.

So read and enjoy.  I know your boys went with you to see this live.  I wonder if they will be humming the tunes again as they leave the theatre on Sept 22nd.
