Gone Missing

Written by Steve Cosson from interviews by the Civilians

Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman

STUDIO THEATRE


Dubbed "a cunningly constructed show" by The New York Times, Gone Missing is a wry and whimsical documentary musical about things that go missing: keys, personal identification, a Gucci pump, or one’s mind. It was conceived from man-on-the-street interviews in 2003 by the Civilians, an acclaimed investigative theatre company in New York City. Contains adult content. More

DISCOUNTED SEATS ARE STILL AVAILABLE IN PARTIAL VIEW LOCATIONS. MUST ORDER BY PHONE AT (540) 568-7000. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, stars of the Emmy-nominated Who’s Line Is It Anyway?, have teamed up to present an evening of extraordinary improvisational comedy. Using their quick wit, Colin and Brad take contributions from the audience to create hilarious and original scenes, just like a live version of Who’s Line! This show is improvised. The performers do not control audience suggestions. Parental discretion advised. More
