Imaginary Theatricals Presents Douglas Carter Beane's THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED

Imaginary Theatricals presents Douglas Carter Beane's biting and extremely funny THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED, directed by Tripp Pettigrew-Rolapp (Irving Berlin's White Christmas) and starring Andy Kenareki (Llamas in Disguise, Andy K Comedy) as Alex. THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED will open on Tuesday, August 6th at 8 pm and will perform through Sunday, August 11th at The Reef, Floor 7, 1933 S Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles.

Mitchell Green is a Hollywood star on his way to the A-list -- if he can only keep that pesky "recurring case of homosexuality" under wraps. When Mitchell falls for a young call-boy while in New York for a premiere, his acerbic, fast-talking Hollywood agent, Diane, takes matters into her own hands. Meanwhile, the call-boy, Alex, is trying to figure out what he wants: Mitchell, or best friend/lover Ellen. He is torn between his desires for glitter and money and his longing for love, with all its requisite complications. Throughout all this, the tabloid-mad public keeps at everyone's heels, waiting anxiously for someone to fall. Douglas Carter Beane's The Little Dog Laughed is a biting, extremely funny and timely comedy, that takes aim at the entertainment industry, sex and sexuality, and the way happy endings "should" look. NOTE: The Little Dog Laughed includes brief, but full, male nudity.
