I think the only way you'll be able to lay your hands on the original
arrangement is to purchase the full score to "The Threepenny Opera." 
Pocket editions are published by Schott and Universal Edition, and both
are available for $33.95 from "http://sheetmusicplus.com/". Search for
"Threepenny Opera" on their web site.

A far more expensive alternative that might be of interest to hardcore
Weill fans are the Kurt Weill Edition scores published by the Kurt
Weill Foundation.  They offer a critical edition of the "Threepenny"
score for $360 and a facsimile edition of the original score for $225.
For details, see "http://kwf.org/pages/kwe/kwe_sub.html".  Very
handsome, high quality publications, but definitely on the pricey side.
