Perlman, Wolfson, Hildreth & de Waal Star to Lead Industry Presentation of New Musical A DOG STORY

Seaglass Theatrical will stage an invite only industry presentation of the new musical A Dog Story directed by Daniel Goldstein (Godspell). The musical written by Eric H. Weinberger (book) and Gayla D. Morgan (music/lyrics) and musical direction by Emily Marshall will take place on April 21, 2016 at 2PM at the Davenport Black Box Theatre (West 45th Street).

A Dog Story is a tail - uh - tale, about Roland, a career-obsessed young lawyer, who gets an [invisible-to-the-audience!] puppy as a "chick magnet", but who has no clue that bringing little Cupid into his world will change it forever.

The cast for this presentation includes: David Perlman (Yank!, Fiddler, Goodspeed), Cortney Wolfson (Kinky Boots), Lucille Lortel nominee Greg Hildreth (Robber Bridegroom) and Jeanna de Waal (Kinky Boots).
