Advertisements for the Volkstheater, including The Threepenny Opera.

We went to see The Threepenny Opera with our theater course. The performance was well-done technically and skill-wise, but was a little weak as far as dramaturgy was concerned.

The whores were portrayed as if they were just like any of the stereotypical women who are portrayed so frequently. However, they missed the point that we should see that those labeled as “lower-class” or “immoral” can also take care of their means of production, i.e. be respectable human beings. They didn't really turn the class thing on its head like I had hoped. But enjoyable.

Bottom-line: I want Mack the Knife's hair, bright blonde with super short sides. Any hair-cut would actually be welcome right now.
