It’s time to hit the Cosmodrome. The Off-Broadway premiere of Space Dogs, a new musical by Van Hughes and Nick Blaemire, officially opens February 13 begins January 25 at MCC. Previews began January 25 and the production recently extended through through March 13.
Space Dogs follows the so-absurd-it-must-be-true story of the dogs trained by Russian scientists to travel into outer space. The musical stars Hughes and Blaemire, who co-wrote the book, lyrics, and music. In addition to playing human characters, they use puppets and play instruments to bring the story to life on stage.
Ellie Heyman directs the production, with choreography by Darrell Grand Moultrie, scenic design by Wilson Chin, costume design by Haydee Zelideth Atuñano, lighting design by Mary Ellen Stebbins, sound design by Nathan Leigh, projection design by Stefania Bulbarella and Alex Basco Koch, and puppet and props design by Amanda Villalobos. Katherine Wallace is the production stage manager and casting is by Geoff Josselson of The Telsey Office. The Space Dogs company also includes understudy Noah Kieserman.
