Yes, we love the cinema for its great auteurs, its glorious faces and 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! The players here include a hard-driving Hollywood agent, her budding screen idol client, a sexy young drifter, and the drifter’s naive, needy girlfriend. The Little Dog Laughed follows the adventures of Mitchell Green, a movie star who could hit big if it weren’t for one teensy-weensy problem. His agent, Diane, can’t seem to keep him in the closet. Trying to help him navigate Hollywood’s choppy waters, the devilish Diane is doing all she can to keep Mitchell away from the cute rent boy who’s caught his eye and the rent boy’s girlfriend (wait, the rent boy has a girlfriend?). Will there be a happy ending as the final credits roll? Advisory: This production contains strong language, adult situations, and brief nudity.
The final production of their 11th Mainstage Season stars Logan Sledge as Mitchell Green, appearing courtesy of Actors’ Equity, the union for professional actors and stage managers in the U.S., and Jamie Kiihnl as his agent Diane, making her SC debut. Joining them onstage will be Eric Mason Kirton as Alex, the rent boy, and Sabrina Scott, as Alex’s girlfriend Ellen.
Performances will be held at 7:30pm on August 19 and 20, as well as 2pm on Sunday, August 21. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $15 for students. All performances will be held at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse at Centenary College of Louisiana.
