Corruption, protest, poverty and oppression.
With an unlikely happy ending and beautiful music.
Small Wooden Shoe brings the themes and songs from Brecht's Threepenny Opera
to the variety show - where they belong.
Each performance, different guests join The Fun Palace Players and Jacob Zimner for songs, radio melodrama and favorite Fun Palace segments Questions in the Dark and Is That Legal?
Adapted by Jacob Zimmer, The 3penny Variety Show changes with each presentation – adapting, critiquing and reflecting the changing politics of a changing world.
Travelling to new cities or contexts, we'd find local guests and a band.
The Fun Palace Players would be part local, part Small Wooden Shoe.
