The Living Theater:
Experimental off-Broadway group formed in New York in 1951 by Julian Beck and his wife Judith Malina, who had been one of Piscator's students (see Epic Theater). Their Company first appeared at Cherry Lane Theater. Notable productions include Mysteries and Smaller Pieces (1964), a series of exercises and improvisations, and Paradise Now (1968). Paradise Now was intended to inaugurate a non-violent anarchist revolution by freeing the individual.
