As part of the Empress Series of its 2014-2015 Season, the Capitol Theatre is proud to present the play Marx in Soho at the Empress Theatre on Wednesday, February 18 at 7:30pm. The one-man play is directed and performed by George MacKenzie, in the role of Karl Marx.
In Howard Zinn’s Marx in Soho, the audience will encounter a Marx who remains passionate about injustice, critical of inequality, and combative with his rivals… but also a Marx who is loving toward his family, saddened by their poverty, and willing to rethink some of his ideas.
Karl Marx was full of passion and humor. A true revolutionary! More than simply examining the life and works of Karl Marx, this play, set in today’s New York City, challenges its audience to consider the issues of Social Justice.
George MacKenzie graduated from Dalhousie University with an undergraduate degree in Theatre and holds an advanced diploma in Public Relations from NSCC. He is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, actor, writer, magician and philosopher. He teaches meditation and is a devoted husband and father of three daughters.
