After a successful run at The Secret Rose Theatre in NoHo, Blazeco Productions' acclaimed staging of Douglas Carter Beane's Tony Award-nominated comedy The Little Dog Laughed reopens August 17 and runs through September 16 at Zephyr Theatre, 7456 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
In The Little Dog Laughed, a hot young Hollywood actor, Mitchell, is up for the role of a lifetime. His agent, Diane, will do anything in her power to keep his "slight recurring case of homosexuality" under wraps. But then Alex, a gay-for-pay hustler, enters the scene, with a girlfriend and their own set of secrets. What are these four conflicted characters willing to give up and compromise for success?
"Little Dog Laughed" was nominated for a Tony Award in 2007 for Best New Play, and won a Best Actress Tony award for Julie White. It was also nominated for a GLAAD Media Award and Lucille Lortel Awards.
