The show features Will Gartshore, Eleasha Gamble, Jobari Parker-Namdar, and Kimberly Sherbach in performing a collection of terrific tunes from some of history’s forgotten mid-century musicals.

Lost Songs performances are September 3 and 4 at 8:30 pm, with two shows a day on September 5 and 6, at 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm. The setting is Signature’s 110-seat ARK Theatre transformed into a dramatic nightclub complete with intimate table seating.
