Description

Where do you look when you want to find yourself?

THE LOST is a new multimedia theatrical experience about discovering your identity. Bobby is a young spoken word poet and foster kid from Harlem. When he’s placed with a new family on the Upper East Side for his senior year of high school, his world gets turned upside down. THE LOST explores themes of change and what it means to spread your wings when the world is telling you that you have none.

Set in the here and now of NYC with hints of a dreamlike nostalgia, THE LOST is the rainbow high that comes with living in this concrete jungle. As you and Bobby jump on that downtown train, you’ll party all night long with vibrant characters of all types that truly open hearts and minds.

Composer Britton Smith creates THE LOST’s lo-fi hip-hop/house fusion music, with moves by acclaimed choreographer Robin Sokoloff. Visionary director Rebeca Rad leads the company on this journey, conceived and written by award-winning playwright Keelay Gipson.
