Brecht and Weill turned to John Gay's 18th-century 'The Beggar's Opera' to fashion this savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality. Set in Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of the predatory outlaw known as Mack the Knife.
In an effort to provide our theatre students with as many performance and design opportunities as possible, the theatre program offers a diverse schedule of performances throughout the year. These events typically take place in the Lindenwood and Emerson Black Box Theater's, and tickets are available at the Scheidegger Center Box Office. All Lindenwood University students, faculty, and staff, receive two complimentary tickets to any event produced by the School of Arts, Media, and Communications.
