Carmen Capalbo

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.
