“Funnier than the Communist Manifesto” “More romantic than Das Kapital”

Witchcraft. Karl Marx. Gold plated airplanes. All in one musical.

A downtown proletariat boy meets an uptown bourgeoisie girl. This proletarian Marc then gets mistaken for Karl Marx, who is summoned from the grave to save the financial crisis by certain dark forces from the banking world. Marc protests but is bribed with wads of cash to go along with it. Marc ‘Marx’ has a choice – to live like ‘Fabulous Fab’ or run off with his newly reformed socialist girlfriend. What will Marx do in this tale of unintended consequences?

Part parody, part political satire, this hard-edged rock musical is the creation of one of Germany’s most beloved artists, Tobias Künzel. Born and bred in the former GDR, he is a member of German hit group ‘Die Prinzen’ which to date has sold over 6 million albums. Since then, as well as being recognised as a solo artist, he has written the hit German musical ‘Elixir’.

‘Comeback!’ arrives in Highgate straight from a run of sold out shows and rave reviews in Germany:

“A mix of catchy tunes, a pinch of romanticism and plenty of slapstick. In order to speak with Karl Marx, opium for the people is required.” – Berliner Morgenpost

“Splendid comedy of errors – really worth seeing.” – Hamburg Bild

Script, Music and Lyrics: Maximilan Reeg, Steffen Lukas and Tobias Künzel.
Translation: Pauline Kingsbury & Graham Laybourne.
Orchestration: Tobias Künzel.
Directed by: Harry Meacher
Produced by: Bryan Hands.
