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.
