Liam Lane is just a normal Englishman in New York – that's when he's not breaking through walls and running on ceilings in the immersive theater sensation, Fuerza Bruta. With his myriad talents in acting and acrobatics, Lane has been shocking and awing the city eight nights a week at the Daryl Roth Theater. His education in the arts began at Bretton Hall Drama School in North England where he studied classical theater. This led to major roles in The Tempest, The Three Musketeers and Romeo and Juliet. In addition to this, Lane has worked as a teaching artist at the Unicorn Theater in London, fusing his classical training and his interest in physical and ensemble work. With the high-flying thrills that Liam gives his audiences at Fuerza Bruta, we are very excited to get Liam Lane out of the air and On the Couch!
