Earthlight was a New Age theater revue company created in April 1969.
We performed at Woodstock in August, 1969, as well as around the East Coast before moving to Hollywood, where we first performed at Bob Graham’s Radio City Music Hall West and then at sold-out performances at our home in Venice.
Earthlight opened off-B’way at the Garrick Theater on January 20, 1971, received rave reviews and ran through April, then embarked on a final college tour in the spring of 1972.
On the evening of August 28, 2009 I sat in a movie theater and watched my magnificent Earthlight creation trashed before my eyes and millions of others on the big screen in Ang Lee and James Schamus’ movie Taking Woodstock. They represented Earthlight in a totally fictitious and ridiculous manner. I’m not a good enough writer to express what I felt watching that shocking insult to myself and all the other Earthlighters who brought the world not only the Woodstock Festival, with Swami Satchidananda, but also some of the most extraordinary theatrical experiences audiences have ever had anywhere at any time.
That was the beginning of my decision to start thinking about assembling materials for THE EARTHLIGHT PLAN: a stage revival, a video recording, a book, and possible feature film. I have finished a revival script, unearthed some recordings of the songs, gotten a lot of pictures and videotape, reviews, etc.
