Just look at the high praise FULL MOON STAGES has received:
The single most influential American company of its era.” —Stephen J. Bottoms, author, Playing Underground: A Critical History of the 1960s Off-Off-Broadway Movement
The Living Theatre was the most radical, uncompromising, and experimental group in American theatrical history.” —John Tytell, author, The Living Theatre: Art, Exile, and Outrage
The most prominent and persistent advocate for a ‘new theater,’ one that sought to dissolve the accepted artifice of stage presentations, to conjoin art and political protest, and to shrink, if not eliminate, the divide between performers and the audience.” —New York Times
I can’t think of any other inspiration of freedom that comes close to representing the message of The Living Theatre and its daring and monumental effects.” — Al Pacino, award-winning actor, from the dedication
Her stamina was extraordinary. She was happy, buoyant, and spread the love.” —Angelica Huston, award-winning actress
A magical diary: pithy, salient. Shows the great arc of an ever radiant revolutionary artist and activist. Judith Malina is still out in the vast sky of our Utopian Living Theatre hearts and minds.” —Anne Waldman, award-winning poet and performer
If one wants to have a life as a woman artist, first of all read Judith Malina—this lovely and evocative FULL MOON STAGES. She was one of the greatest theater makers of the 20th into the 21st Century, and one of the most fascinating, brilliant women of the world.” —Karen Malpede, award-winning playwright
For the people who knew Judith Malina in life nothing can fill the absence of that most vibrant, profound, quixotic, being but this book, FULL MOON STAGES is a Fattura, a spell, that can conjure Judith for YOU in the present. It is a vortex, an entry into her world, into that amazing mind and life of hers. It is a diagram, an ex-ray, a blueprint, a map of a poetic, artistic, political, metaphysical life lived to the fullest.” —Penny Arcade, award-winning performance artist
So Don’t miss this memorable night with many Living Theatre members standing up for the legendary theater force Judith Malina. Plus a special reading from Judith’s book by members of THE LIVING THEATRE.
The event is free and open to the public. For reservations and additional information, contact info@threeroomspress.com.
Judith Malina (1926–2015) was a German-born American theater and film actress, writer, and director. With Julian Beck, she founded The Living Theatre, a radical anarchist-pacifist political theatre troupe that rose to prominence in New York City and Paris during the 1950s and 60s, and continues to perform worldwide to this day.
In 1947 she and painter Julian Beck founded The Living Theatre as an artistic and socially-conscious alternative to the commercial theater. Since then she has directed (and often acted in) more than sixty important productions which have hadconsiderable influence on the development of contemporary theater, including William Carlos Williams’ Many Loves, Jack Gelber’s The Connection, Kenneth H. Brown’s The Brig, Bertolt Brecht’s Antigone and the collective creations Mysteries and Smaller Pieces, Frankenstein, Paradise Now and The Legacy of Cain.
In 1975 Malina was given a lifetime achievement Obie award; in 1985 she was a recipient of a Guggenheim award; in 2003 she was inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame; in 2008 she was awarded the Brazilian President’s Medal for Outstanding Artistic Achievement.
