A few words from Jerry Levy about these shows:

For ten years I have had the good fortune to tour a one person play about the life of Karl Marx by Howard Zinno "Marx in Soho" is returning to the Hooker Dunham Theater to  celebrate its Ten Year Anniversary where this production opened here, and at Marlboro  College in 2004. With the invaluable help of my director Michael Fox Kennedy and my manager David, this production of "Marx in Soho" has had over 250 performances in over 80 cities and towns across the United States, Canada, and Europe, often to activists who would have preferred to see Howard but welcomed me and his play with open arms. In the process I probably learned more about Karl Marx then in the over 40 years I taught his work as a sociologist. I continue to be inspired by Howard Zinn and intrigued by this important and enigmatic historical figure, so humanized in "Marx in Soho". I continue to explore issues raised in Zinn's play about the relationship between Marx's ideas, his life, and character. How would Marx represent himself today if he returned again after another 23 years in what I now call Purgatory? How would he be influenced by watching what has transpired on earth, particularly the United States since his brief his visit in 1991? How would he be affected by the historical figures he co-habitats with in Purgatory and what more might he reveal about his personal life and why? These and other questions have motivated me to write another play - "The Third Coming: Marx Returns" that is meant to stand on its own, but also continues Zinn's dramatic study in a different direction. I hope you will enjoy both these plays about the life and after life of Karl Marx
