THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED

Peregrine Theatre Ensemble at the Provincetown Theater

2639718_origYes, 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?  BUY TICKETS

HIGH TIME

Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse

In 1963 in a big house in Newton, Massachusetts rented by Dr. Timothy Leary and Dr. Richard Alpert, heads of Harvard’s Center for Personality and Research, guided psychedelic research trips were conducted with the best and the brightest in hopes of unlocking the mystery of LSD and its power to increase human potential. This new play details a 12-hour acid trip with Leary, poet Allen Ginsberg, Englishman Alan Watts, Mary Meyer, JFK’s last mistress, Rosemary Woodruff, a beautiful young dancer and Lisa Bieberman, Leary’s devoted assistant. Set against the day Leary and Alpert are fired from Harvard, effectively ending all serious LSD research, the trip takes a rogue turn in this mind-expanding comedy.  BUY TICKETS

ROUGH CROSSING

Cape Rep Theatre

13450211_10154305186297174_2841371148559551497_nBy Tom Stoppard, Freely adapted from Ferenc Molnar’s Play at the Castle. Directed by Scott Ripley

It’s the 1930s and celebrated playwrights Turai and Gal are sailing to New York for the Broadway debut of their new musical comedy.  But the play is unfinished, beginning, middle and end and to further complicate matters, the composer tosses his music overboard and threatens to take the leap over the rail too.  Rough Crossing is as delightfully delirious as the art form it affectionately lampoons, with original music composed by André Previn.  BUY TICKETS
