Water by the Spoonful

Mack the Knife, a notorious bandit and womanizer, runs afoul of Jonathan Peachum when he marries Peachum's daughter Polly in a ceremony of doubtful legality. Peachum and his wife commence a series of stratagems to ensnare Mack and send him to the gallows. Written in 1928, with a jazzy score by Kurt Weill, Threepenny is one of the most influential works in musical theatre history.
