About this event

Karl Marx travels to the future to stand in front of American audiences and ask "so how do you like it?" Now more than ever his critique of capitalism is poignant and heartbreaking. This interactive one-man-show, takes place in Downtown LA and travels between three spaces at the heart of the visible homeless crisis. This is an experience which will not be soon forgotten.

Due to the unique nature of the play, capacity is very limited and we encourage securing a spot in advance. The ticket price is from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.

In his play, Marx in Soho, Howard Zinn introduces us to Marx’s outlook on society and passion for change with wit, humor and gusto. Zinn, bestselling author of A People’s History of the United States, is an important American historian and playwright, and his writing offers a unique perspective on Marx’s life, and the fundamental ideas of Socialism.

This is the second run of Marx in Soho, directed by Ye'ela Rosenfeld, in LA, which already had three performances in the fall. The previous run took place at the Actors Art theater near LACMA and sold out to raving reviews. Allyson Nobles of HEY socal wrote: “Throughout the performance, bouts of laughter spill out of the audience, the chairs squeaking along gleefully with their giddy spasms – their engagement still just as profound during the more solemn, inward-looking moments of the Marx prophecies being explored.”

Rosenfeld is an accomplished stage and screen director, known for her work with renowned director, Roman Polanski. Her show The Physicists premiered at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival to rave reviews. Among others, she has put up LA productions of works by Vaclav Havel, Friedrich Durrenmatt and Jean Paul Sartre.

Marx in Soho, will be performed by renowned theater actor, Gera Hermann.
