Benefit Performances in the Mainstage Theatre
Will Geer was blacklisted from a thriving career in Hollywood in the early 1950s. His long career of labor unionizing throughout the United Statesand association with subversive musicians like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and others made him a target of suspicion at the height of the Cold War’s first ‘Red Scare’. In keeping with Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum’s deep social justice roots, Blacklisted is a one of a kind evening celebratingthose musicians which society had once sought to silence.
