FOUND isn’t just based on a true story, it’s based on hundreds of them. From the Tony-nominated co-creator of [title of show] and the creative team of the nationally renowned Story Pirates, Atlantic Theater Company is proud to present this vibrant new musical.
FOUND was created from scores of surprising and eccentric discarded notes and letters that have been “found” in the real world by every-day people. Inspired by actual events, the show follows Davy who, along with his two best friends, is lost and broke. When he finds a strangely revealing note on his windshield meant for someone else, it sparks an outlandish idea that finds him and his compatriots on a wild, comedic journey. This raucous and insightful new musical tells a story of ambition, betrayal and loyalty while celebrating the weirdness in all of us.

“Buffini’s voice is distinctively dark yet dazzlingly funny.”-The Guardian
DYING FOR IT is the story of Semyon, a man down on his luck, married to a nag, and out of options. When he decides to throw in the towel and kill himself, a deluge of sympathetic visitors descends upon him, determined to make him a martyr for their many causes. Swept up in the firestorm of attention, Semyon does take matters into his own hands, but not quite in the fashion that everyone expects. An outrageous satire on the hypocrisy and illogic of Soviet life, this play was banned by Stalin before it ever saw the light of day, and is now regarded as an under-known 20th century classic comedy.
