The Third Coming: Marx Returns!

Join Brooklyn For Peace for a benefit performance of The Third Coming: Marx Returns! written and performed by Jerry Levy at The Brooklyn Commons on Saturday, June 18 at 7 pm.

Professor, sociologist, actor, author, musician, and playwright Jerry Levy portrays Karl Marx in this one man play about the life and afterlife of Karl Marx, set in modern America.

Inspired by Levy’s 250 performances of “Marx in Soho” by Howard Zinn, this one man play demonstrates the effects of what Marx had warned against 150 years prior: the continual movement of capital (money) from the hands of those who actually do the work into the pockets of ownership/ruling class.
