This special engagement honors the work of composer and Off-Center Artistic Director Michael Friedman, whose life was tragically cut short last summer.



"Michael Friedman was a brilliant and prolific composer and lyricist, a pianist, a thinker, a mile-a-minute talker, a gesticulator, a person who dazzled and could leave you dizzied - not just by his talent and intelligence but by his kindness and humanity, which were always at the forefront of his work." (The New Yorker)



In 2003, New York City theater troupe The Civilians interviewed real people about the physical objects they'd lost - keys, a sapphire ring, a Gucci pump. The wry and whimsical docu-musical that emerged, Gone Missing (written and directed by Steven Cosson), features an energetic score by Michael Friedman and presents a very personal account of how we deal with loss in our lives.



Gone Missing is part of the 2018 Encores! Off-Center season which includes Songs for a New World and Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t Cope.
