I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change

"The immediacy of the creative experience in a beautiful, intimate venue such as Lost Nation has created here in Montpelier, cannot be equaled or duplicated for the artists involved in its creation and the audience who receives that gift. Historically, LNT has led the way for the amazing amount of cultural activity that has blossomed in central Vermont."

-Tim Tavcar, Actor, Director, Musician, & Administrator
