Greek mythology meets burlesque, puppetry, and a modern Americana score in the latest original piece from acclaimed ensemble Liars & Believers, creators of last year's gritty hit, 28 Seeds. Minnie's Menagerie, a peculiar Depression-era sideshow, is raking it in with the help of Daedalus's whimsical technology. But when Daedalus's son falls in love with Minnie's daughter, the star attraction, their passion and plans to escape threaten to bring it all crashing down.
ICARUS features an original Americana score by Nathan Leigh(Song of Songs) and the fantastical puppetry of Faye Dupras. Each show will open with a local band, burlesque, and carnival performers. The opening bands will be the Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library on May 17th and What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? on May 18th.
Boston Survival Guide calls Liars & Believers "the region's most experimental and visionary artists." Liars & Believers is a non-profit theatre company that creates original live performances that seek to move minds and challenge the boundaries of theater. The company focuses on expanding the audience for live performance in Boston, exploring great local talent of all kinds, and enriching the Boston community.
Come to the carnival! Each night will feature an opening band, burlesque, and sideshow delights, including The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library on May 17th and What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? on May 18th. Stay tuned for details!
