Rob Asaro's New Play LOST AGAIN Plays The Tank November 2-16

An unlikely pair travel cross-country in Rob Asaro's new play Lost Again. The limited run plays November 2 - 16 at The Tank in New York City. The production is directed by Jay Michaels.

Lost Again is a road dramedy about two mismatched strangers paired up by a mutual friend: Ilona Young, a type-A, know-it-all travel blogger on a cross-country assignment and Casey Calvino, a jaded comedian on a tour of the U.S. Their story is one of identity, pain, adventure, friendship, moving on and moving forward. Each act will take place in a city, or town, en-route from New York to Los Angeles. The story is part misadventure, part self-discovery, and part buddy dramedy.

Asaro shared what inspired this project, "I have been on the road as a comedian and a traveler and my experiences have significantly influenced this project. I go on the road to find answers. Most of the time, I don't find them. But sometimes special things happen. While road tripping, I've fallen in love and have performed for a huge cross-section of Americans. That said, I have also broken down and been stranded twice. Once in Council Bluffs Iowa a "mechanic" told me he'd never seen a car quite like mine. (it was a honda). I've fallen down the Rocky Mountains because I was wearing dress shoes. (I forgot to buy hiking boots), and I'm pretty sure I met everyone there was to meet in Milwaukee in two days' time."

He went on to say, "The road puts me in a different state of mind, it seems to untether me from time itself and the world opens for me a bit more than usual. It can be lonely and freeing all at once. On the road, I feel more inclined to talk to a stranger, visit a psychic or go see an out-of-the-way excursion. The hope is to get to where you are a little differently, a little better."

The cast stars Rob Asaro and Katie Lyons (Hideout/Amazon), and features Mike Allen, Jack Barry, Ed Friedman, Helen Hood, Gail Payne, Michael Pichardo, Ashlyn Prieto, Lauren Rathbun, Mikayla Sherfy, Kelly Thomas, and Isaac Williams.

Rob Asaro (Playwright/Casey/Producer) wrote Lost Again after adapting it from his episodic series of the same name. The script was a finalist at the Austin Film Festival pitch competition in 2021. He previously completed the ambitious pilot NY/LA in 2018 - a multiverse show about a man who can't decide which way to go: New York or Los Angeles. The show follows both threads. Rob has toured the country performing and is the original founder of the nationally known Emerson College comedy troupe: Chocolate Cake City.
