So-so reviews for Broadway revival of 3Penny Opera

Starting with the NY Times review.

Sometimes I think modern directors think the only way they can do a revival is if they find some new way to push the sexual envelope. Certainly it's Scott Ellis' M.O. Because Cabaret and Threepenny aren't seedy and harsh enough being about prostitution and crime and abortion.

I love Cyndi Lauper, and it sounds like she gives it her all. But the overall production sounds depressing and kind of dreadful. Of course I'm not a huge fan of the show, despite having done it and enjoyed being in it at Foothill (12 years ago!!) All those alienists don't do it for me.
