Aging lefties of the world, unite. You have nothing to lose but your complacency.
Howard Zinn's "Marx in Soho," a touring one-man show starring Brian Jones now playing at the Complex, mounts a clarion defense of the principles of Marxism while taking a timely jab at a consumerist culture run amok.
Author of "A People's History of the United States," Zinn is a renowned radical historian who uses the character of Karl Marx to restate the case for Communism, the death of which, in Zinn's view, has been greatly exaggerated.
Outraged over the misinterpretation of his social theory, Marx (Jones) is granted a respite from the afterlife to return to Earth and restate his philosophical case. Only, instead of ending up in London's Soho, where he spent a large part of his adult life, Marx ends up in New York's Soho.
