Penny Arcade, Justin Bond, Debbie Harry, Susan Hwang, Nancy Magarill, Nellie McKay, Our Lady J, Austin Pendleton, Tammy Faye Starlite, Sandra Weigl, and cast members from the Broadway musical Passing Strange will participate in Revolutionary Acts, a benefit for the Living Theatre, honoring founder and artistic director Judith Malina. The event, to be emceed by Murray Hill, will take place at Joe's Pub, Monday, August 25 at 7pm.

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.
