Theater Lower East Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The Living Theatre (founded by Julian Beck and Judith Malina in 1947) created several of the pieces that made New York a theatrical mecca in the '60s and ’70s—the hyperrealist The Connection and protest-art constructions like Paradise Now, among them—but it lost its spaces to the IRS and the New York Buildings Department. Now Malina has returned from a nomadic existence abroad to establish another pacifist, vegetarian, antiauthoritarian beachhead on the Lower East Side. The space, a low-ceilinged concrete room, has housed rental pieces like Hillary: A Modern Greek Tragedy as well as the unstoppable Malina’s own projects.
