Wasatch Theatre continues their 17th season by partnering with Silver Summit Theatre for the Utah premiere of Douglas Carter Beane’s The Little Dog Laughed. Nominated for the 2007 Tony Award for Best Play and the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York Theatre, Little Dog is a delectable lampooning of Hollywood's perceptions and deceptions.
The players include a hard-driving Hollywood agent, her budding screen idol client, a sexy young drifter, and the drifter's socialite 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 (yes, the rent boy has a girlfriend). The play explores what happiness looks like for these characters and the roadblocks that constrain and influence both their decisions and their identities.May 15 - May 23Innovations 2015
