Tour dates have been announced for the new Jerry Zaks-helmed family production 101 Dalmatians: The Musical, which is set to launch in Minneapolis Oct. 13.

Featuring a score by STYX rocker Dennis DeYoung and a book by Zaks' protégé and Billy Elliot resident director BT McNicholl, 101 Dalmatians: The Musical is a fresh take on the 1957 novel by British author Dodie Smith.

The production, which will incorporate actors dressed as dogs in addition to 15 actual spotted pooches, is told from the Dalmatians' point of view. Casting for the tour will be announced shortly.

This sounds a right dogs dinner to me?

The original book is one of my favourites from childhood.

All the films have been travesties, even the Disney original.

This will be too.

I completely agree with you Scripps. The book is just not meant to be performed. Stage just seems like it would be worse in this case.

Like or not, I'll be seeing the tour in Chicago. It's included in my season tickets. It sounds very...dubious.

I am going to be Los Angeles next year when this is on, I will go and see this as it is a good excuse to see the Pantages Theatre, also while in LA going to catch South Pacific at the Ahmason, so be great to catch two great theatres. Also I hope Billy Elliot would of opened in San Fransisco.
