The Mushroom Cure

June 20th & June 21st at 8pm.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, but for one comedian suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder, it just might be psychedelic mushrooms. The Mushroom Cure is the hilarious, harrowing and heartrending tale of how Adam Strauss tried to treat his severe OCD with psychedelics. After extended, sold-out runs in NYC and SF, the show makes its LA premier at the Lyric for two nights only. Directed by Jonathan Libman.
