Lent: Part 1

The Threepenny Opera (Die 3 Groschen-Oper, 1931) – I’m just going to get this out of the way: Bobby Darrin ruined “Mack the Knife”. Sing it in German with more menacing lyrics and an organ-grinder beat. I know, I know, just trust me. It turns out the song about a man who goes around stabbing people is supposed to be creepy.

I really do love Weimar-era film, which is good, since the chorus is rehearsing a show about Weimar-era Berlin.

So here we go: year 6. If I can’t be punctual, may I at least be funny sometimes.
