BWW Review: A DOG STORY Captures Hearts and Laughs at The Davenport Theater LoftBWW Review: A DOG STORY Captures Hearts and Laughs at The Davenport Theater Loft

While the play is a microscopic look into the lives of three men just trying to make a buck, it draws parallels to the underlying greed of corporate America. Theater on the Edge gives a raw, raucous, and honest production that would make Mamet proud. (more...)
