“Judith was a galaxy of culture, a rock star, a booming presence. She put a lot of life in every second. She inspired students and artists, and by celebrating her we celebrate an example of what a person can be,” said Burgess, artistic director of The Living Theatre, in a recent statement.
Judith Malina was an actor and director, who with her husband, Julian Beck, founded The Living Theatre in New York City in 1947. Read Playbill.com's obituary here.
