Lost Lounge (2009)
Lost Lounge is a tribute to last holdouts–both the people and the places people gather to face or fend off encroaching cultural extinction. Recreating their favorite lounge acts like Louis Prima and Keely Smith, Mike Nichols, and Elaine May, Shaw and Weaver attempt to rescue some old haunts of the newly gentrified Bowery Corridor and resurrect some old entertainers who, except for an occasional outing on You-tube, might otherwise fade into a black and white memory. Written and performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, Sound and music by Vivian Stoll, Choreography by Stormy Brandenberger.
