The Lost Boy is the fictionalized account of the 1874 kidnapping of Charley Ross. Little Charley's disappearance captured the imagination of the nation, a media frenzy drummed up in part by P.T. Barnum himself. The script awkwardly crosscuts scenes of the suffering family with straight-from-the-big-top performances by tumblers and jugglers, gamely mugging for audience applause. Despite a clear effort to comment on the public nature of tragedy in America, the show's threads work at cross purposes, each distracting from—rather than illuminating—the other. ALISON HALLETT
