Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have awarded Miami University’s production of The Little Dog Laughed with a 4.0 star recommendation.
The Little Dog Laughed satirizes the world of tabloid gossip, scandal, Hollywood and celebrities through the story of a rising young star who finds himself in the midst of an identity crisis. Though determined to be true to himself and announce that he is gay, his agent is hesitant for him to do so knowing what it could do to his career.
Panelists enjoyed the production. One panelist declared, “By far, the best college performance I have seen in awhile. I commend the students, and the university, for taking on such a difficult piece in content and pop culture. The direction and actors were a dynamic group in forming a truly captivating show that made the audience chuckle several times while leaving us with many thoughts in the end.” Another noted: A studio theater production well done! I felt like I was at an off-Broadway show.”
Miami’s The Little Dog Laughed runs through October 25th. Tickets can be purchased at http://blogs.miamioh.edu/home/box-office/.
Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT party in the summer.
