The Old Globe Extends DOG AND PONY Through 7/6
By Popular Demand, The Old Globe will extend the run of the World Premiere of Dog and Pony through Sunday, July 6 at 7 p.m. This delightful new musical, with book by Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Michael Patrick Walker, began performances on May 28 and opened June 5 with an original closing date of June 29. 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. Tony Award winner Roger Rees (The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, "Cheers") helmed the premiere in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.
