Mother Jones in Heaven: A Musical
Through story and song, Vivian Nesbitt (Breaking Bad, The Night Shift, Longmire and more) portrays Mary Harris Mother Jones, with musical accompaniment by John Dillon, in Si Kahns one-woman musical about the infamous labor organizer famed for her tireless efforts on behalf of the rights of the working class.
The musical opens as Mother Jones arrives in Heaven to discover that its almost identical to her favorite Irish Pub just outside of Washington, DC. In the course of the 90-minute performance, Mother Jones looks back over her life, balancing the scales as she sifts through her storied past, weaving moments of profound insight with hilarious tales of a hellion in her prime. On the one side, her methods and practices, on the other, her reputation and results. Director Jo Johnson skillfully sets the pace for the compelling book and twelve original songs by author, activist, songwriter Si Kahn.
