Although the show was produced on a small scale in Germany and the United States after World War II, Weill and Brecht both wanted to see a major production done in the U.S. (There had been an unsuccessful Broadway production in 1933.) In Europe, the Nazis had banned all of Brecht and Weill's works because they were deemed "degenerate." It has been said that at the display of degenerate art at the Neues Museum in Berlin, recordings of The Threepenny Opera were played constantly as an example. But Weill and Brecht were never able to reach agreement about a second major U.S. production.See more
