TheaterWorksUSA has announced plans to bring Dog Man: The Musical back to New York City for a limited eight-week engagement at New World Stages. Performances will run March 4-April 30, with an official March 13 opening.
Inspired by the Dav Pilkey book series, Dog Man follows the chronicles of a canine superhero who loves to fight crime and chew on the furniture. But while trying his best to be a good boy, can he save the city from Flippy the cyborg fish and his army of Beasty Buildings? Can he catch Petey, the world's most evil cat, who has cloned himself to exact revenge on the doggy do-gooder? And will George and Harold finish their show before lunchtime?
The musical features an original book and lyrics by Kevin Del Aguila (Emmy-winning writer of the PBS show Peg Cat) and music by Brad Alexander (See Rock City & Other Destinations), with orchestrations by Lloyd Kikoler. Jen Wineman directs and choreographs.
Dog Man: The Musical had a previous off-Broadway run at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in 2019.
