Tucson Weekly 11/6/08


"Arizona Onstage Productions has polished Jessica Grace Wing's LOST into a memorable musical . . . "

" . . . music that is "lovely and lyrical" ". . . music that defies easy categorization . . ."


" . . . LOST will take its rightful place in a short line of musicals about codependency (the most famous being Carousel)." 


Tucson Citizen  11/6/08


Headline - Tucson audience should be happy complete "LOST" has been found


"Composer Jessica Grace Wing and Lyricist Kirk Wood Bromley created a musical just as mysterious as life itself.  Thinking about "Oklahoma!" "The Pajama Game" or anything by Stephen Sondheim feels downright simplistic compared to the morality and mythology of LOST . . . "


"Now we can see that LOST has the depth and, most important, the artistic resonance to please audiences around the world."

Arizona Onstage Productions (Sunday in the Park With George, Elegies, BARK!), presents a new vision of Hansel and Gretel - told with fantastical words, music and images of Appalachian folklore to create a haunting, classically flavored musical both entertaining and unexpected.


The two abandoned youths are welcomed by witch/priestess Mamba and her clan of ghosts, both the mythical and those based on American history, including Ivy, a Salem witch burned at the stake, Silas, a Confederate Soldier shot in the stomach, Little Wing, a Native American whose family, starving after Europeans came, left him to die and Mazy, a black slave who was abused by her Master and Mistress. These are joined by White Fawn, a talking/singing deer and various ghosts/hoodoos from Appalachian folklore, including the Bell Witch, Wampas Cat, Stephen Bishop, Martin Stone and several others straight out of the Tennessee/Kentucky Great Smoky Mountains - legends and oral history.


This 90-minute production features a cast of 25 performers, life-size puppets and orchestra.  During its sold-out New York City run, LOST received unanimously glowing reviews:


"A Sparkling score-perfect!" -The New Yorker

"Extraordinary, brilliant, breathtaking and exhilarating" - NY Theater


Although Tucson-based 31 year-old composer Jessica Grace Wing lost her battle with cancer weeks before the premiere of LOST, she will be remembered for many things, including her part in bringing this dynamic journey of music, folklore, and imagination to joyful life.  Some mature subject matter.
