Joseph Gordon-Levitt is escaping from Hollywood to spend more time with his longtime brainchild, hitRECord. JGL’s open-collaborative production company, now 125,000 members strong worldwide, functions as a creative hub for writers, videographers, musicians and artists of every kind. In addition to screening some hitRECord projects that have made the biggest splash in the festival circuit (Sundance, SXSW, etc.), JGL will take the stage at the Merriam Monday to direct and act alongside audience members in sketches and shorts produced by the hitRECord community. As always, the crowd is encouraged to record all the goings-on and post them online.
Mon, Nov. 19, 9 p.m., $19.50-$39.50, Merriam Theater, 250 S. Broad St., 215-893-1999, kimmelcenter.org.
