Liars & Believers (the LAB) is an ensemble company that creates original live shows with music, movement, mask, puppet, video, clown, live bands, aerialists … pretty much anything we can get our hands on. Collaborating with audiences and artists of all kinds, we create theatrical works that invite you to open your heart, challenge your mind, and feast your senses.

A regular ticket would be $25, but we believe money shouldn't be a hurdle to enjoying art. So we've made all our tickets "Pay What You Can". Know that if you can only afford $5, we want you to join us. Know that if you pay more than $25, you're helping other people enjoy the same art that you value. Art is not free - but art belongs to everyone.

Run time: 90 minutes.
