Although fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL don’t see much of Karla Mosley as Maya on the soap lately, those who live in the Los Angeles area can catch the talented actress on stage in the new musical comedy, Found! “It’s based off these found notes and letters that people find and send into this magazine,” Mosley explained to Soaps In Depth. “The musical is based off the text of those letters but also follows the journey of the founder of the magazine. There’s a little love story thrown in there as well. I play, in a very soapy way, the third member of the love triangle.”
Mosley plays the role of Becka McNeil, a Los Angeles agent who tries to get the guys to turn their underground magazine that compiles these random notes and letters into something bigger, and in the process gets romantically involved with the founder, played by Jonah Platt. “The show is very much an ensemble show, so in addition to the ‘core four,’ there’s this amazing ensemble of people from the Groundlings and improv and all kinds of hysterical television shows. So there’s this whole other really funny and heartwarming and often heart-wrenching narrative going and they represent all of the ‘finds.’ They get to do a lot of the dancing. Unfortunately, I am sort of the ‘straight’ person and I’m sad about that because I love to dance. But I do get some really wonderful singing moments, so that’s great.”
The actress is thrilled to be back on stage again, admitting that it’s been a while since the birth of her daughter, Aurora, back in August of 2018. “The last full stage show I did was when I was pregnant with her,” Mosley recalled. “I haven’t done a musical since I can’t remember when. I did a Dreamgirls concert last spring, but that was a quick and dirty thing. The last time I did a fully staged, rehearsed musical was seven to 10 years ago. So it’s really fun!”
You can watch Mosley and the rest of the talented cast take the stage and act out the content of the weird, wonderful, funny, and heartbreaking real-life notes while telling their story at the Los Angeles Theatre Center. Found officially opens on Feb. 20 with performances running on weekends until Saturday, Mar. 23. Tickets for all shows are $35 and for more information and to purchase tickets, you can call 323-380-8843 or visit www.iamatheatre.com.
