Douglas Carter Beane's acclaimed comedy The Little Dog Laughed comes to Broadway, directed by four-time Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis. The cast features Tom Everett Scott, Julie White, and Johnny Galecki.
Forget all the holier than thou Oscar speeches -- what everyone really loves about Hollywood is the down and dirty dish. The players in Douglas Carter Beane's deliciously biting farce, The Little Dog Laughed, include a screen idol hiding in the closet, an ambitious male prostitute and his naïve girlfriend, and a brash, driven Hollywood agent who can spin anyone and anything. Maybe.
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls the play "The tastiest homegrown comedy of manners to hit New York in years -- a tangy new fable of fame and its discontents, with an expressly theatrical energy that finds the verbal music and rhythm in Hollywood-style hypocrisy."
