The Beggar’s Musical

Crowded alleyways and tenements near a shipyard are the setting for this adaptation of John Gay’s, The Beggar’s Opera, written by Janet Schlapkohl.  A large collection of diverse characters, from the ribald, licentious, wicked and corrupt, to the foolish, tricky, and charming, offer an uncompromising look at society from its underbelly.  Directed by Shay Lilienthal
