Written and directed by Judith Malina, HERE WE ARE opened on January 23 to enthusiastic reviews, playing its final performance at 21 Clinton Street on February 23, marking the longest run for the company in one venue in New York City. Catherine Rampell, in her New York Times review, called HERE WE ARE "bizarre and whimsical and lyrical." She concluded that attending a production of The Living Theatre is an "essential New York experience." In his Back Stage review of HERE WE ARE, Jonathan Mandell described the production as "hugely engaging." He added, "Using the language of the avant-garde, HERE WE ARE has some substantive things to say. The Living Theatre, rightly labeled legendary, but still fresh, is worth catching."
