Founded in 1947, The Living Theatre is the oldest experimental theater group still operating in the U.S. It was started up by Malina and her first husband Julian Beck (who died in 1985) as an alternative to the commercial theater. The internationally acclaimed company is fiercely political, with many of its shows taking place on the streets as political protests rather than in traditional theater spaces. Among its best-known productions are Paradise Now, The Connection, and The Brig.
