Douglas Carter Beane’s play is making its round, this time On Melrose in West Hollywood.
From the press release:
“The Little Dog Laughed”
An Adult Comedy of Manners by Douglas Carter Beane
August 17- Sept 16
Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 6pm
Starring Bernadette Birkett, Owen Martin, Trip Langley and Laine Jennings
After a successful run in North Hollywood, “Little Dog” makes it’s way to Hollywood at the Zephyr Theater.
“The Little Dog Laughed” is a sexy funny comedy with “a slight recurring case of homosexuality”.
A hot young Hollywood actor, Mitchell is up for the role of a lifetime, and his agent Diane will do anything in her power to keep him quietly in the closet, until Alex, a gay-for-pay hustler enters the scene, with a girlfriend and his own set of secrets…
Will Mitchell and Alex get their “Hollywood Ending?”
The Little Dog Laughed, Douglas Carter Beane’s hilarious, edgy Hollywood-New York showbiz satire, has arrived in North Hollywood with its cutting-edge love story between a gay movie star and a bisexual hustler and its much touted (albeit brief) display of full-frontal male nudity. Director Jon Cortez and cast are largely successful in entertaining, titillating, and maybe even coaxing a tear or two from audiences in search of comedy with a bite.”
Tickets are $30
This show contains adult situations, on-stage smoking, drinking and male nudity and, as such, is not recommended for children (leave them at home), sensitive prudish adults, or anyone under the age of 17
