The Office meets The Godfather

When the seemingly innocent Polly Peachum elopes with the suave but ruthless gang leader Macheath, their marriage sets off a turf war with the elder Peachums for control of London’s lucrative underground. One of the most influential works in musical theatre history, this gangland satire launches a vitriolic broadside at the corruptions of capitalist modernity.
