Since 1989 LOST MUSICALS™ has been giving contemporary audiences, in London and New York, a unique chance to see neglected or forgotten works by the finest librettists, lyricists and composers of the early twentieth century musicals. Over the last seventeen years, their estates have allowed us to organise reconstructions of over 60 different such works.

LOST MUSICALS™ is always faithful in presenting the writers work and their shows as they first appeared, but recreated in concert form to be performed in London and New York. These first division theatre writers and composers have included Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, George S. Kaufman, Oscar Hammerstein II, Moss Hart, George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin, E.Y. Harburg, Kurt Weill, Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Kern, Herbert Fields, Dorothy Fields, S.J. Perelman, Ogden Nash, Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner.

As a theatre director, I direct and oversee the casting of my shows. The primary homes for our work, LOST MUSICALS™, have included London's Barbican Centre, The Royal Opera House Covent Garden and currently Sadler's Wells.

We present fund-raising shows in New York to benefit our government sanctioned charity, The Lost Musicals Charitable Trust, a theatre education based charity. Many of our performances have been broadcast by the BBC and the work of LOST MUSICALS™ has greatly influenced many similar series to spring up.

The true stars of this work are the writers themselves. Their work, through the authenticity of LOST MUSICALS™ can again be recognised and celebrated by the new generations of audiences.
