LITTLE MAC, LITTLE MAC, YOU'RE THE VERY MAN!

Genre: Musical
Written by James Presson and Sean Patrick Monahan, Directed by Charlie Polinger

LITTLE MAC, LITTLE MAC, YOU’RE THE VERY MAN! is based on Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s The Threepenny Opera, resetting its antihero, the renowned outlaw Macheath, in the Wild West on the run from the local oil tycoon, Mr. Peachum, and his henchman, Sheriff Lockit. The long arm of the law pursues Little Mac across the country, and through a hodgepodge of American history and culture. Along the way, he encounters familiar faces including Al Gore and Al Capone, Ronald Reagan and Ronald McDonald, and Lucille Ball and her buddy Ethel (Rosenberg). Rounding out the story of the outlaw- and the eighty-five memorable characters he meets- is a musical score that pays homage to the classic American songbook. Part spaghetti Western, part political satire, and part film-noir, Little Mac is a heartwarming tale about money, capitalism, and money.
