As introduced on NBC's 'Today Show', The Kids Left. The Dog Died. Now What? is a musical comedy that salutes those valiantly struggling with divorce on their hands, gravity on their bodies, grandchildren on their self-images and the dating scene on their egos. The risks and uncertainties of being alive come alive through song and scene. Aging gracefully is the final frontier! This entertaining musical about those facing a host of midlife crisis first premiered at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2007. Boasting a four-person cast, the show takes a humorous and heartfelt look at the day-to-day concerns of the over-fifty 'empty-nester' crowd including everything from retirement and AARP, dating to divorce, plastic surgery and grandparenting.
