Soup Can Theatre Toronto: An In-Concert Version of The Threepenny Opera - Three Performances October 2 2016

From a media release:

Soup Can Theatre is excited to announce an in-concert version of
THE THREEPENNY OPERA

Music by Kurt Weill. Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht. English Translation by Marc Blitzstein.
Directed by Sarah Thorpe and Pratik Gandhi
October 2nd 2016 at the Monarch Tavern Toronto

TORONTO - Soup Can Theatre is kicking off the month of Halloween with our favourite musical and the inspiration for our Toronto Fringe hits Love is a Poverty You Can Sell I and II: an in-concert version of THE THREEPENNY OPERA - a dark play with music full of crime, greed, lust, dark humour, and biting social commentary that chronicles the exploits of antiheroic criminal Macheath (aka ‘Mack the Knife’) against the backdrop of 19th century London's seedy underworld. With a haunting score and message, THE THREEPENNY OPERA is Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's most famous collaboration from the Weimar Era.

To put a spin on things, there will be 3 PERFORMANCES in ONE DAY! Sunday October 2nd at 4pm, 6:30pm, and 9pm at the historic Monarch Tavern in the heart of Little Italy. In addition, just 3 PERFORMERS will be playing ALL the roles: Scott Garland (2016 Dora Award Nominee for Three Men in a Boat), Christian Jeffries (from our Love is a Poverty You Can Sell cabarets), and Sarah Thorpe (Soup Can co-founder, MyTheatre's 2015 Fan Favourite Award winner for Heretic), under the baton of our musical director Pratik Gandhi (music director of the Rouge River Winds and resident conductor at Toy Piano Composers), who helmed the music on our productions of Circle Jerk, A Hand of Bridge, Marat/Sade, and Love is a Poverty You Can Sell I and II.

Performance Details:
Where: The Monarch Tavern, 12 Clinton Street, Toronto.
When: Sunday, October 2nd, 2016. 4pm, 6:30pm, and 9pm.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required
