Living Theatre Creates Film Production Branch

living theatre

The Living Theatre has a new creative outlet: film!  The legendary company, which recently gave up its home on Clinton Street, is forming “Love Every Style Productions (L.E.S.)”  Brad Burgess, the Living Theatre’s executive producer, talked with us recently about the new project, which is meant to expand the theater’s reach, to engage with a new digital audience.

The creation of L.E.S. Productions does not mean the Living Theatre is abandoning the stage.  It’s latest production, “Here We Are,” closed on Clinton Street last month, as Judith Malina’s experimental company works towards establishing a new home at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center.  “Here We Are” will make a return engagement at CSV next Tuesday-Friday.  Malina, who lived above the Clinton Street theater space, has moved to the Lillian Booth Actors’ Home in New Jersey; she remains creative director of the company she co-founded in 1947.
