The fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel meets the even grimmer and more fantastical imagination of Kirk Wood Bromley in this enchanting new musical fable. Jessica Grace Wing's haunting, classically flavored music combined with Bromley's Joycean word-tossing is a treat for the theatergoer that is looking for something unique and perfect for the Fall season.

Lost is the story of Hanlon and Gabby, two teenage siblings abandoned by their father in the Great Smoky Mountains. Stumbling upon a cabin, they are whisked into the world of Mamba, a witch who runs a Youth Hostel where she watches over a group of children whose organs she farms in order to live forever. Enslaved, Gabby and Hanlon face off with Laborious (Mamba's evil scientist husband), axe-wielding ghouls and hoodoos (all historically-based ghosts of the Appalachian region), and the vagaries of young love.
Mamba and Laborious prepare for the body-theft of Hanlon's brain and Gabby's womb, but the mysterious appearance of a white fawn changes everything.
This re-vamping of the classic Hansel and Gretel story features life size puppets by Broadway puppetmaster Jane Stein, a cast of 13 talented musical performers, a full ensemble, and an extraordinary score of inspired genius by Jessica Grace Wing, whose struggle with cancer during the musical's creation brings an added poignancy to the themes addressed in this epic production.
