Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with help from Levi's® and Sony®, brings his popular hitRECord On the Road show to Philadelphia's Merriam Theater on November 19 at 9 p.m.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will serve as the unique show's host for the evening, presenting short new short works of collaboratively made video, music and writing created by the hitRECord world-wide community of artists. Gordon-Levitt will also direct, and will be performing and interact ing with the live audiences in sketches, readings and musical moments - contributed by the hitRECord community. Of course, he'll encourage audiences to record the proceedings on their cameras, phones and other portable RECording devices.
"Getting the opportunity to present the art that we make together at hitRECord in live settings is almost as gratifying as actually making the work itself," said Joseph Gordon-Levitt. "And the art that we make at our live shows is not only inspiring, it's fun as hell!"
