Happy Hour #30: Der Dreigroschenpodcast - ‘The Threepenny Opera’
Hallo kinder! We’re going further than we’ve ever gone before for our thirtieth birthday, back to pre-war Germany and Brecht and Weill’s “The Threepenny Opera.” We learn the differences between Verfremdungseffekt and Gesamtkunstwerk, talk about how torturous times can create form-changing art and reflect on how Brechtian theatre exists today.

Too much personal rambling
When they actually discuss the shows, it is great. When they go on for MINUTES about stuff about them, it's annoying. It is also really annoying when they discuss shows they clearly haven't seen, in which cases, they tend to just regurgitate the Wiki article.

Clearly in over their head when it comes to discussions of certain shows. Like the other reviewer said, they rely too much on wikipedia.

Fun and informational!
This is my favorite theatre podcast! It's provides both an educational look into the shows they cover, as well as a more subjective take into certain aspects of them. The episodes are enjoyable whether you're super familiar with the particular show they're discussing or not.
