Directed by Judith Malina
Music by Jackie McLean, and Rene McLean
Director of Production and Design: Gary Brackett
Featuring Judith Malina and The Living Theatre Ensemble, and the Rene McLean Quartet.

THE CONNECTION occupies a critical role in the history of theatre in New York, the Beat generation, and jazz music. Its improvisational style of acting and its exciting use of live jazz changed the course of theater and performance.

The Living Theatre, the oldest experimental theatre group still existing in the country, will present the 50th anniversary revival of THE CONNECTION in collaboration with New York City jazz musician Rene McLean, who will conduct a New York jazz ensemble. The Production will begin performances on December 31, 2008 and will continue until Februrary 13, 2009. Judith Malina directs.
