Excerpt from Las vegas Review Journal:
“Enjoyable ‘Little Dog’ shows more than naked bodies
The program for Las Vegas Little Theatre’s presentation of “The Little Dog Laughed” gives a warning about the play’s “full male nudity, strong language, and mature themes.” It’s not for the squeamish.
But in playwright Douglas Carter Beane’s Hollywood satire, the profanities have a lyrical roll and the nudity is a natural, symbolic part of the story about two repressed guys, played by Chris Hermening and Jason Nino, who bare body and soul to each other in a moment of vulnerable abandon. Plus the scene is incredibly funny and the physiques are nice to gaze upon, easing any embarrassed squirming in the seat. ”
The Little Dog Laughed
by Douglas Carter Beane
Directed by David Ament
January 16 – February 1, 2015
Mitchell is a Hollywood star on the rise, and his full-time agent and part-time beard, Diane, is doing all she can to keep his “slightly recurring case of homosexuality” from derailing his fame. But when he falls in love with a New York City rent boy, things become…complicated. The Little Dog Laughed takes an acerbic and sharply funny jab at the entertainment industry and human nature in a tabloid obsessed society.
