VIEW
Lip Sync with
Echo Theater Co.

What began as a simple backyard competition between friends and theater members has morphed into a for-real competition with choreographers, costume designers, and lots of practice.

Sat., 7:30 p.m.

The Lost Studio, 130 S. LaBrea Ave., b/t W. First & Second Sts., Melrose. Tickets ($25) online at echotheatercompany.com.

PEEK
Inside the Fridge of a DailyCandy Editor
