Yes, we love the cinema for its great auteurs, its glorious faces and its daring images. But in this tabloid age where big stars go on Oprah and jump around like heartsick schoolboys, what we really love is all that dish! The players here include a hard-driving Hollywood agent, her budding screen idol client, a sexy young drifter, and the drifter's naive, needy girlfriend. THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED follows the adventures of Mitchell Green, a movie star who could hit big if it weren't for one teensy-weensy problem. His agent, Diane, can't seem to keep him in the closet. Trying to help him navigate Hollywood's choppy waters, the devilish Diane is doing all she can to keep Mitchell away from the cute rent boy who's caught his eye and the rent boy's girlfriend (wait, the rent boy has a girlfriend?). Will there be a happy ending as the final credits roll?
"Theatergoers have cause to rejoice. Devastatingly funny, with dizzy, irresistible writing that brings down the house." —NY Times. "A fun evening, full of wit and wisdom." —NY Post. "Big fun and an out-and-out delight…Don't be surprised after seeing it that you giggle in your dreams." —NY Daily News. "Audiences no doubt will be tickled by the Satire/Political Satire's risqué humor and hint of topicality…Clever and funny quick-witted dialogue." —Variety. "A laugh-out-loud lampoon of Hollywood humbuggery…Tremendously funny." —Star-Ledger.
