The national tour of The 101 Dalmatians Musical is directed by Jerry Zaks and featuring a score by Dennis DeYoung and a book by B.T. McNicholl. Adapted from Dodie Smith's 1957 novel (which is well known due to Disney's beloved animated film version), the story revolves around a canine family that must band together to overcome every hurdle and hardship in the most difficult times, including the machinations of Cruella de Vil. The finale will feature real dalmatians. Rachel York stars as Cruella De Vil.
