Up Next: The Connection (City Arts Magazine Preview)

www.cityartsonline.com

“The Connection was first produced by the Living Theatre in 1959 as a collaboration between some of the great theatre artists of that time, including Living Theatre co-founders Judith Malina and Julian Beck. Blending live jazz with dialogue to create a live experience of chaotic sound and poetic frenzy, this play took home three Obies in 1960 including the award for Best New Play. This new production will give modern audiences an oppurtunity to experience the inventive structure and experimental techniques of the original off-off-Broadway hit. Featuring Mickey Rowe as Solly and Ray Larson, on trumpet, leading a four-peice jazz band.” -Marya Kaminski, City Arts Magazine August 2011 Issue
