3 Penny Opera
Tonight @ Off the Wall Theatre, 8 p.m.
Frequent Milwaukee stage bad guy Jeremy Welter plays the sociopathic Macheath in Off the Wall Theatre's production of the classic Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht musical 3Penny Opera. Welter is no stranger to villainous characters. In the recent past, he has played everyone from Renfield in Dracula and Alex in A Clockwork Orange to the title character in Hamlet. If anybody can give the impression that he could actually commit the alleged atrocities of “Mack the Knife,” it should be Welter.
