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 will run May 28 - June 29, 2014 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Preview performances run now through June 4. Opening night is Thursday, 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.
