The Actors Gymnasium's hit show "Lost & Found" is back for a limited time and playing now until March 11 at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston. This family friendly show is a high flying mix of astounding aerial skill, upbeat live and recorded music, slapstick comedy and thrilling circus acts performed by kids, teens and adults.
"Lost & Found" is a collaborative original work by Co-Artistic Directors of the Actors Gymnasium School for Circus and Performing Arts Larry DiStasi and Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi along with a talented team of designers and performers. The creators describe the show as an exploration of "the world of second-hand treasure. Cast-off junk and cast-off characters are saved in this show and given thrilling, new life." Costumes and elements of the set are recycled from previous performances.
My 7-year-old daughter and I had the pleasure of catching the show on its opening night and were thrilled by the performances of the cast. The show features a tender and sweet storyline throughout with many moments of hilarity and humor. Lots of ideas are at work here, from an innovative reference to our tech-obsessed culture to an old fashioned boy gets girl tale.
While some of the humor may be best understood by the 8 and up crowd, this show is suitable for ages 5 and up and filled with plenty of laughs and thrills for all ages.
Be sure to catch Lost and Found: A Recycled Circus Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday now until March 11.
