Show poster


A movie star on the rise.
An agent on the phone.
A hustler on the prowl.
Welcome to Hollywood, baby!

Is he or isn't he - and can an actor in the celluloid closet experience true love and career success?   Gossip and entanglements snare a rising Hollywood star and his agent in this satiric look at celebrity.

Dubbed "the tastiest homegrown comedy of manners to hit New York in years'" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, Douglas Carter Beane's The Little Dog Laughed is a deliciously biting farce about Hollywood. The players in this hilarious comedy include a screen idol hiding in the closet, an ambitious male prostitute and his naive girlfriend, and a brash, driven Hollywood agent who can spin anyone and everything. 

The hilarity of Hollywood hypocrisy and what self-deception does to people in the shallow and superficial world of show business is satirized in THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED.

A Tony Award nominated comedy of manners directed by Jamie Lloyd.
