San Diego's Old Globe production of Rick Elice and Michael Patrick Walker's Dog and Pony has extended its run through July 6. Directed by Tony winner Roger Rees, the new musical began performances May 28 and officially opened on June 5.

With a book by Elice (Peter and the Starcatcher, Jersey Boys) and music and lyrics by Walker (Altar Boyz), Dog and Pony follows Mags and Andy, a screenwriting team with a successful track record and a professional relationship that's firing on all cylinders. But when Andy's marriage takes a turn for the worse, single Mags finds she wants something more.

Dog and Pony will feature Nicole Parker (Wicked) as Mags and Jon Patrick Walker (Young Frankenstein) as Andy, with Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Helen Hayes Award winner Heidi Blickenstaff (The Most Happy Fella), and Eric William Morris (Mamma Mia!) completing the cast.

The creative team includes Lisa Shriver (choreographer), Larry Hochman (orchestrator), Kris Stone (scenic design), Emily Pepper (costume design), Jeff Croiter and Cory Pattak (lighting design), Scott Lehrer (sound design), Adam Wachter (music director), Tara Rubin Casting (casting), and Anjee Nero (stage manager).
