Beggar's Holiday

Beggar's Holiday is an updated version of the classical operetta The Beggar's Opera.



The musical focuses on a corrupt world inhabited by rakish mobsters and their double crossing gangs, raffish madams and their dissolute whores, panhandlers and street people as they conduct their dirty business, ply their trade, and struggle to survive in brothels, shanty towns, and prisons.
