The Joe Hill Revival—Encore Performance at the Triad in Manhattan

February 6, 2 pm4 pm.
Live: $25 + processing/Streaming $20 + processing

Description:

  Early 20th century songwriter and activist Joe Hill often rewrote the words of church hymns and popular tunes of his time, converting them into songs of protest and activism.   Extending that approach, “The Joe Hill Revival” show revives Hill’s life and lyrics using the musical language of our time. The audience is given a chance to sing along with Hill’s songs and to connect what inspired movements like the International Workers of the World to challenges we still face today. 

   And the story?  A love triangle, hidden for years, between IWW activist Joe Hill and Hilda Erickson which led to his shooting.  A trial and execution by a state determined to drive the IWW out of Utah.  The words of firebrand activist Elizabeth Gurley Flynn brought to life.  A show about finding joy in living, fighting (and sometimes even dying) for what you believe in. We hold history in our hands. 

  Brooklyn Tavern Theater premiered this show at Rustik Tavern in Fall of 2021.  This is an encore performance for those who missed our Brooklyn show or would prefer to stream.
