The Penny Jive
OBERON Shows
September 29, 2013
Clouded by glamour, glory and glitter is The Penny Jive, where the ElectroSwing plays on and on until you forget your days at the bottom of the barrel and the bottom of the bottle. Where lust, murder, marriage & betrayal are mere party favors of another droll evening strolling the jack-knifes edge of life. 
 
Find yourself swept up into the world of Mac the Knife in an entirely new re-telling of a penny dreadful story older than bath-tub distilleries. Imagine Brecht/Weill's "Threepenny Opera," and John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera" had a kid with the adopted child of Django Reinhardt and Daft Punk, and that kid owned a night club that played EDM and Swing Music and buffered it all with cage dancers, burlesque & vaudeville... what you have is this rollicking immersive ElectroSwing clubnight theatrical!

Jenny Diver - Lilly Bordeaux

Mr. Peachum - Tim Hoover
Polly Peachum - Kimberly Waller
