MARX IN SOHO

“It was smart, it was funny, and it was the perfect thing for the times in which we live.” —Michael Moore 

Coming to Chicago for two shows only:

Howard Zinn’s ‘Marx in SoHo‘ 

Marx is back! In this witty and insightful “play on history,” Karl Marx has agitated with the authorities of the afterlife for a chance to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error, though, Marx is sent to Soho inNew York, rather than his old stomping ground in London, to make his case.

Howard Zinn, best known for his book, ‘A People’s History of the United States’, introduces us to Marx’s wife, Jenny, his children, the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin, and a host of other characters.

Brian Jones, an African American actor and activist, has been performing this engaging one-man show across the country since 1999.

Marx in Soho is a brilliant introduction to Marx’s life, his analysis of society, and his passion for radical change. Zinn also shows how Marx’s ideas are relevant in today’s world.
