Go, Dog. Go!*

May 1 – 17, 2020

P.D. Eastman, author
Steven Dietz, playwright
Allison Gregory, playwright
Michael Koerner, composer

P.D. Eastman’s classic children’s book comes to life on stage in an exploration of movement, color and space. The dogs delve into life with gusto, creating a visual spectacle for the audience to feast upon. They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They sing and dance and climb trees. This is a rollicking free-for-all of chicanine-ery. A big and little musical world of doggy fun. Like a pop-up book that comes to life – and never stops.

About the Show:

“This play is adapted from a book renowned for its ability to generate fun, learning, adventure and surprise with a minimum of text. It honors the joyous simplicity of the world around us. Therefore, in the making of this play, it is not our intention to “fill out” or “open up” the story in the style of many traditional adaptations. “Expanding the book” in this way would, we believe, rob it of its essential wondrous and loopy anarchy. Instead, we hope to celebrate and explore the existing words and pictures; to look not “outside the book,” but more closely “within it” – in the way that a child can page through Mr. Eastman’s book night after night and find something remarkable and new with each subsequent reading. We have chosen, therefore, to play inside the story – to explore the buckets of bliss, wonder, longing and discovery that are waiting for us, for all of us, there.” – Allison Gregory and Steven Dietz
