A DOG STORY Musical Plans Final Woof Off-Broadway This Winter

A Dog Story, a new musical with music and lyrics by Gayla D. Morgan (Mary - A Musical) and book by Eric H. Weinberger (Wanda's World), at The Loft at The Davenport Theatre (354 W. 45th Street), will play its final performance on Sunday, January 15th.

At the time of the closing the show will have played 14 previews and 62 performances. National and international licensing of A Dog Story will be announced shortly. The show is produced by Seaglass Theatrical and co-produced by Waterfront Theatrics and Martha Robinson.

A Dog Story is a charming new musical comedy about Roland, a career-driven lawyer, who thinks he must be married to make partner. To solve his dilemma, he gets a puppy as a chick magnet. Through first dates, angry tangos, and a sudden disappearance, Roland discovers there's more to life when you "get a dog!"

The cast of A Dog Story includes David Perlman (Baby It's You!) as Roland, Lindsie VanWinkle(Nevermore) as Miranda, Stefanie Brown (WICKED Tour) as Blair, Brian Ray Norris (Sense and Sensibility) as Guy and Alex Kidder (Ragtime at Westchester Broadway Theater) and Chris Blem (Disney's Believe) are the swings.

Directed by Justin Baldridge (Thoroughly Modern Millie in Redondo Beach) with musical direction by Dylan Marcaurele, the creative team includes scenic design by Lauren Mills (My Fair Lady at The Sharon Playhouse), sound design by Tyler Kieffer (The History Boys at Palm Beach Dramaworks), lighting design by Jamie Roderick (Disney's Tarzan at the WPPAC), costume design by Travis Chinick (That Bachelorette Show), orchestrations by Frank Galgano & Matt Castle, and choreography by Shannon Lewis (Fosse). A Dog Story is executive produced by Ken Davenport.

A Dog Story received its premiere production in May 2014 at the Waterfront Playhouse in Key West, Florida.
