The Little Dog Laughed (play)


The four characters are an actor, Mitchell, his acerbic agent Diane, a hustler named Alex, and Alex's girlfriend Ellen. When Mitchell and Alex become involved in a physical relationship, Diane is concerned that what she describes as Mitchell's "slight recurring case of homosexuality" will derail his career before it gets started.

The play originally was produced off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre. It opened on January 10 2006 and closed on February 26 2006. Scott Ellis directed Neal Huff as Mitchell, Julie White as Diane, Johnny Galecki as Alex, and Zoe Lister-Jones as Ellen. Lucille Lortel Award nominations went to Ellis and White, and the play was nominated for the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York Theatre.

White and Galecki remained in the play when it transferred to Broadway. After 22 previews it opened on November 13 2006 at the Cort Theatre and ran for 112 performances. Tom Everett Scott portrayed Mitchell and Ari Graynor played Ellen (Lister-Jones stood by for the part, then replaced Graynor at the end of the run).

It was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play and Julie White won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for her performance. The 2007 Theatre World Award was presented to Johnny Galecki.
