Gone Missing Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

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 cabaret-theater about the little things in life seen largely.

"This delightful comic revue…is fresh, breezy and very funny indeed, a perfect summer entertainment." —NY Times. "GONE MISSING is not merely a witty, quick-footed and entertaining evening of theater; it is also a finely tuned inquiry into the nature of memory that manages to be forward-looking at the same time. GONE MISSING's links between past and present provide clear evidence of evolution in the world of modern theater. Miss it and weep." —Time Out NY. "…engrossing and inventive. And it delivers a stunning payoff in its final scene…both a kick in the gut and a philosophical conundrum. It's the kind of conclusion that lingers in the mind long after the show that offered it has vanished." —Variety. "A startling combination executed with great panache, satirical acumen and covert tenderness." —Independent (London).

Short
Synopsis

IN THE FOOTPRINT tells the story of Brooklyn's largest development project in history. The play examines the conflicts that erupted in the case of Atlantic Yards through to their current resolution in an attempt to discover how the fate of the city is decided in present-day New York and what can be learned from this ongoing saga of politics, money, and the places we call home. The play is constructed from interviews with real-life players in this Brooklyn epic, including local residents, business owners, opposition leader Daniel Goldstein, political leaders such as Letitia James and Marty Markowitz, activists, union members, and community leaders.

"…the company's entertaining, insight-rich show about the controversial redevelopment plan in Brooklyn, restored my faith in the ability of theater artists to engage meaningfully with the world, here and now." —NY Times. "Social theater at its best." —New York Magazine. "Forget the bulldozers: [IN THE FOOTPRINT proves] that art can be groundbreaking too." —Time Out NY. "A powerful, multifaceted portrait." —Time Out Boston.

Synopsis

THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY investigates the growth of the evangelical movement in Colorado Springs. While The Civilians were conducting interviews with people involved with or affected by the mega-church movement and the battle raging over gay marriage, the scandal broke about New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard, which shook the entire city of Colorado Springs, providing the play's creators with an unprecedented opportunity to capture an important event as it was taking place, and providing the people of Colorado Springs with the opportunity to express their opinions and concerns as those events unfolded. THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY is a fascinating and timely look at faith and how it affects the American landscape.

"Engaging, inquisitive and evenhanded work of theater about the transformation of an American city and many American lives." —NY Times. "A fascinating crazy quilt on faith's role in American life." —Variety. "An entertaining and thoughtful portrait of a large segment of society." —NY Post. "Praise the Lord and pass the tape recorder! A lively docudrama with a generosity of spirit." —Associated Press.
