In a culture of fear and exhibitionism, who preys upon whom?

A 4-year-old boy is snatched and ransomed by down-on-their-luck roustabouts. His father, the police and P.T. Barnum attempt to outsmart the captors using newspaper headlines, trains and death-defying trickery, while a mother mourns what she has lost. Meanwhile, Tom Thumb, the Strong Man, a trapeze artist and a Circassian psychic create their own acts at the boy’s expense. Loosely based on true story, this media frenzy and entertainment spectacle of 1874 is a tightrope mystery where a boy’s life hangs in the balance amid the self-serving interests of white collars and circus-folk vying for the upper hand.

  25. Dayle January 3, 2013 at 5:04 pm #

    This plot reminds me of a similar experience I had after a pub crawl in Tacoma, except in my case, the perps were a bearded lady and nattily dressed conjoined twins. My therapist feels I might make a break-through if I see “The Lost Boy.”

  26. Kelly January 3, 2013 at 5:15 pm #

    What an awesome story brought to the stage…even better this would be my first theater showing in Portland! Please and thank you…

  30. Theo January 3, 2013 at 5:43 pm #

    Growing up, my mother always threatened to return me to the circus when I misbehaved. I’ve been a very bad girl this year. Perhaps it’s time to return me to my people. Tickets to the homeland, please!

  31. Megan January 3, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    I think P.T. Barnum is the bees knees :)

  32. Eddie Wretch January 3, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

    Are you kidding me, who wouldn’t want to see this? I am obsessed with circus/carnival/side-show history/life.
    I have my flippers crossed that I will win a couple ‘O tickets!

  57. Hannah January 4, 2013 at 10:07 am #

    I’d love to see anything that has “trickery” or so called mystery… Because I’m a lonely person and this keeps me entertained, from my loneliness. Crippling loneliness.

  58. Debstrrr January 4, 2013 at 10:16 am #

    This sounds INTENSE!! I need a good place to take a first date, and this is just the ticket…please, PICK ME!!

    Death defying trickery is right up my alley. I would love these tickets, as I am a culture vulture in need of an artsy transfusion to start the new year off with a brilliant bang!

  61. Lynn January 4, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I know what you want
    I know what you need
    Better than you do

  69. Elizabeth Brown January 6, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    My great grandmother was employed by Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey as a sideshow attraction starting from 1901 when she was 18. Her name was Grace Gilbert. She was one of the original women working as “Bearded Ladies” Fascinating period with a personal link. Would love to go.

  70. Cheryl January 6, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I haven’t been to this theatre yet, and I’d love to check it out!

  71. Nancy January 6, 2013 at 9:55 pm #
