The lead-up to the “Lost” finale is getting even more event-filled, with a discussion with the show’s executive producers and even a comedy show joining the farewell events.
That’s in addition to an announced event in Los Angeles on May 13, which will feature a screening of the next-to-last episode and composer Michael Giacchino leading an orchestra performing selections of music from the show. Those details come courtesy of executive producer Carlton Cuse’s Twitter feed, which also notes that members of the cast will be present.
Tickets for the event at UCLA’s Royce Hall haven’t gone on sale yet.
A week after the Royce Hall event, Cuse and fellow exec producer Damon Lindelof will take part in a discussion with New York Times entertainment editor about writing the finale and the twists and turns of the series.
The live event is sold out, but it’s also being simulcast to theaters across the country. Details on theater locations and tickets are at the TimesTalks site.
In a slightly less official capacity, the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe will present “Come Fly With Me: A One-Man Show With Capt. Frank Lapidus” on Saturday, May 22, the night before “Lost’s” finale (note: presence of the actual Frank Lapidus, Jeff Fahey, not necessarily guaranteed). The New York show is sold out, but according to Variety, UCB member Paul Scheer — a “Lost” fan who moderated the show’s panel at PaleyFest in March — is helping organize a show in Los Angeles the same night.
