Wed., Feb. 6 — Magic

Kicking things off for downtown's new Liberty Magic venue is Eric Jones, a charismatic magician from Philadelphia with a restrained, unexpected, approach to his reveals. His show, IMPOSSIBLE, uses familiar tools from the trade like cards and coins to deliver something truly new and unique. City Paper got a sneak peek in December, and we promise you won't be disappointed. Continues through Sun., March 17. 7:30 p.m. 811 Liberty Ave., Downtown. $40. trustarts.org

Thu., Feb. 7 — Stage

The coming-out stories for LGBTQ people can be quite harrowing.
