Photo Flash: DOG AND PONY World Premiere Opens Tonight at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents the World Premiere of Dog and Pony, a new musical with book by Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Michael Patrick Walker. From the award-winning talents behind Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher, and Altar Boyz, Dog and Pony is a romantic musical comedy that follows Mags and Andy, a successful screenwriting team, as their professional relationship evolves into something more. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Tony Award winner Roger Rees (The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby) returns to the Globe (The Merry Wives of Windsor, Love's Labour's Lost) to helm the premiere of this delightful new musical. Dog and Pony runs in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Opening night is tonight, June 5 at 8:00 p.m.

Mags and Andy are a screenwriting team with a track record of hits and a professional relationship that's firing on all cylinders. But when Andy's marriage hits the rocks, forever single Mags finds she wants something more. Will romance ruin their perfect relationship? Dog and Pony is a world premiere musical comedy romance that takes a witty and irreverent look at what women want and whether men fit the bill...or don't.

The cast includes Heidi Blickenstaff (Jane, Annie), Beth Leavel (Rhoda, Doris), Eric William Morris (The Host, Jeff, Joe), Nicole Parker (Mags), and Jon Patrick Walker (Andy).

The creative team includes Lisa Shriver (Choreographer), Larry Hochman (Orchestrator), Kris Stone (Scenic Design), Emily Pepper (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter and Cory Pattak (Lighting Design), Scott Lehrer (Sound Design), Adam Wachter (Music Director), Tara Rubin Casting(Casting), and Anjee Nero (Stage Manager).
