The Living Theatre
Book Fair poster

This flyer was used to promote the 1961 Winter Book Fair held by the Living Theatre at their then headquarters near Union Square, New York City. Small scale public benefits such as these were frequently organized to sustain the group’s production of experimental live theatre productions and drew on their extensive New York network of artists and performers. The 6th Avenue—14th Street venue noted in this poster was shut down by the I.R.S. in 1963, leading the company to evolve as the nomadic, touring ensemble that established their international reputation through the late 1960s and 70s.
