Vivid Stage presents "Gone Missing"

(SUMMIT, NJ) -- Vivid Stage presents Gone Missing from February 22 through March 3, 2024 at the Oakes Center in Summit. Featuring a Book by Steve Cosson and Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman, this is a  wry and whimsical documentary musical of loss devised from interviews with real-life New Yorkers by The Civilians, the acclaimed New York-based company.

This collection of very personal accounts of things “gone missing” —everything from keys, personal identification and a Gucci pump to family heirlooms, your dog and your mind—creates a unique tapestry of the ways in which we deal with loss in our lives. A flexible company of six performs more than thirty characters, intertwining these stories of lost objects with tales from some unusual “finders,” ranging from a retired NYPD cop to a pet psychic. Set against eclectic and tuneful songs by Michael Friedman, Gone Missing is about the little things in life —seen largely.

Performances take place February 22-24 at 8:00pm; February 25 at 2:00pm; February 29, March 1-2 at 8:00pm; and March 3 at 2:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase online. The Oakes Center is located at 120 Morris Avenue in Summit, New Jersey.

The cast includes: Clark Carmichael*†, Laura Ekstrand*†, Scott McGowan*†, Becca McLarty*†, Melody Stubbs, and Thomas Vorsteg*. * member of the Vivid Stage ensemble / † member of the Actors' Equity

​The production team includes Director: Joshua Schnetzer; Musical Director: Dan Crisci; Assistant Director: Nabeel Jan; Stage Manager: Miranda Rhode; Assistant Stage Manager: TBA; Set Designer: Zach Pizza; Lighting designer: Zach Pizza; Sound designer: Jeff Knapp; and Playwrights: Steve Cosson, Michael Friedman.
