'Little Dog' preems at Second Stage

Despite the subject matter of Second Stage Theatre’s new show “The Little Dog Laughed” — play takes a satirical glance at a closeted movie star navigating the crazy world of Hollywood — Monday night’s cast party was anything but repressed.

Leading the celebrations at Planet Hollywood Times Square was scribe Douglas Carter Beane, who explained his take on the often brash and crass nature of the industry: “Showbusiness is America, with the volume turned high. Everything in this country has the volume turned up — it’s politics as much as it’s culture. This place is loud!”

Still, Beane relished the idea of taking the show to England, perhaps with a few tweaks. “I’d love to go to London and get Madonna for one of the parts. The Lady Ritchie would be perfect for the tone of the play.”

Helmer Scott Ellis plus cast members Johnny Galecki, Julie White, Neal Huff and Zoe Lister-Jones were also on hand to join the celebrations, as well as Victor Garber, Kelly Ripa, Faith Ford and S. Epatha Merkerson.
