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 originally directed by Steve Cosson), features an energetic score by Michael Friedman and presents a very personal account of how we deal with loss in our lives.
“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)
