If you've never had a Contemporary American Theatre Appreciation class, this is a good start!
26 April 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This film is subtitled "to be with the Living" and it certainly puts the audience inside the tight-knit group of theatrical performers known as 'The Living Theater'. This profile also demonstrates the many challenges of performing 'politically aware' (agitation-propaganda) theater from free countries like the USA to war-ravaged locales like their performance in an evacuated prison in Beirut, Lebanon. Lots of archive footage helps uninitiated viewers get caught up with the group's work over several decades as well as the lives of its founders, legendary actress Judith Malina and the late Julian Beck. A must-see for theater aficionados but 'Bushies' might want to avoid this one as they may find the leftist politics a little disturbing. [One side note, the filmmaker narrates the film and his Austrian accent is reminiscent of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger (kind of ironic if you think about it - lol)].
