New Musical Gone Missing to Make Off-Broadway Debut in June

News   New Musical Gone Missing to Make Off-Broadway Debut in June The Civilians, the Manhattan-based experimental theatre group, will make its commercial Off-Broadway debut in June with the new musical Gone Missing.

Featuring a score by Michael Friedman, the musical will begin previews June 14 at the Barrow Street Theatre with an official opening June 24. Steven Cosson will direct a company of six — Emily Ackerman, Damian Baldet, Stephen Plunkett, Robbie Sublett, Colleen Werthmann and Jennifer Morris — who will play more than 30 characters.

The musical, which is based on interviews company members conducted with New Yorkers, is described in this manner: "Gone Missing is a collection of very personal accounts of things lost – everything from keys, personal identification and a Gucci pump to family heirlooms, your dog and your mind – creating a unique tapestry of the ways in which we deal with and relate to loss in our lives. . . . [The musical intertwines] stories of lost objects with those of the 'finders,' from a retired NYPD cop to a pet psychic."

Gone Missing was initially performed shortly after Sept. 11, 2001. Since that time the show has grown and now features a score by Friedman, which incorporates salsa, ballads, operetta and tuneful pop.

The design team comprises Takeshi Kata (set design), Sarah Beers (costume design), Thomas Dunn (lighting design) and Ken Travis (sound design).

Gone Missing will play Tuesday-Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday at 2:30 and 7:30 PM and Sunday at 5 PM. Tickets, priced $20-$45, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. The Barrow Street Theatre is located at 27 Barrow Street at Seventh Avenue South. For more information visit www.barrowstreettheatre.com.
