Carmen Capalbo

Director, Producer, Stage Manager

Carmen Capalbo, who directed the historic Greenwich Village revival of The Threepenny Opera that changed that classic musical's modern fortunes and helped establish the Off-Broadway theatre world, died on March 14, 2010, in Manhattan. He was 84. Mr. Capaldo — a slight man with a "Napoleon haircut and a Latin terpermanent," "outsize brown eyes always veiled by exhaustion" and "a languid manner concealing depths of fiery ambition," all according to the 1957 New York Times — also directed the premiere of Eugene O'Neill's play Moon for the Misbegotten on Broadway.
