NEW YORK, N.Y. - While the provocative musical "The Threepenny Opera" celebrates lowlifes, the upcoming production by the Atlantic Theater Company will star some royalty — Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes, Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham and Emmy Award winner Michael Park.

The Atlantic announced the line-up Wednesday, which also includes Tony nominee Mary Beth Peil, and Broadway veterans Sally Murphy and Rick Holmes. Previews start March 12.

The revival of the Bertolt Brecht-Kurt Weill masterpiece will be directed by Martha Clarke, a choreographer and director whose best-known original work is "The Garden of Earthly Delights."

Brecht's biting, bracing book, based on John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera," tells the scabrous tale of lowlifes in Victorian England as it rails against the capitalist system and the oppression of the common man.
