'Little Dog' Laughs on Bway Nov. 13; Scott Joins Cast

Dates and a theatre are now set for the previously-announced Broadway transfer of The Little Dog Laughed, Douglas Carter Beane's hit Hollywood satire.  The play will begin performances at the Cort Theatre on October 26th for a November 13th opening.  Film and TV star Tom Everett Scott will join Julie White and Johnny Galecki, both of whom starred in the original Off-Broadway staging at Second Stage.

Neal Huff played Everett Scott's role of a closeted Hollywood actor in the Second Stage production.  White received accolades for her performance as his cutthroat agent.  Galecki played a vulnerable young hustler.  The role of Ellen--played by Zoe Lister Jones Off-Broadway--has yet to be cast for the Broadway transfer.

Roy Gabay and Susan Dietz, in association with Second Stage Theatre, will present The Little Dog Laughed on Broadway.  A Broadway production for the play had been announced earlier this year, although no details had previously been confirmed. 

The play began previews at Second Stage on December 13th, opened on January 9th and played to February 26th after having been extended. "Yes, we love the cinema for its great auteurs, its glorious faces, its daring images. But in this tabloid age where big stars go on Oprah and jump around like heartsick schoolboys, what we really love is all that dish!!! Carter Beane's players in The Little Dog Laughed includes a Hollywood agent, her very promising, up-and-coming boy-toy client, a sexy young drifter, and the drifter's girlfriend," stated press notes. 

Scott Ellis (Twelve Angry Men) will once again direct. The design team will also remain the same for the transfer; it is comprised of Allen Moyer (sets), Jeff Mahshie (costumes), Donald Holder (lighting) and Lewis Flinn (sound).

Scott, who currently plays Wyatt Cole on "Saved," has appeared on screen in Van Wilder, Boiler Room, One True Thing, An American Werewolf in Paris, The Love Letter and That Thing You Do, among others.  Other TV credits include "ER" and "Grace Under Fire."  Although he will be making his Broadway debut, Scott has appeared Off-Broadway in The Country Club and in Dead End and Turnaround in LA.
