Kid Brooklyn Productions
Kid Brooklyn Productions mission is to create theatrical work that is unique, thought provoking, fearless, relevant, provocative, entertaining, raw, humorous, and honest. We want to create theatre that explores every aspect of the human experience light and dark, heartbreaking and joyful, beautiful and broken. We want to challenge ourselves as artists and break our boundaries in the stories we tell on stage.
The goal the KB Lab Series is to offer a safe and creative developmental environment for new work. Each playwright/director will be given two weeks rehearsal, minimal technical aspects, and three to four performances if front of an audience. The goal of these performances are for the playwright to see the work fully staged in front of audience of their peers and theatregoers and use to go further in their development of the work. All performances will be free and feature a post-show discussion with the playwright, director, and members of the cast.
THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED — By Douglas Carter Beane
Yes, we love the cinema for its great auteurs, its glorious faces and its daring images. But in this tabloid age where big stars go on Oprah and jump around like heartsick schoolboys, what we really love is all that dish! The players here include a hard-driving Hollywood agent, her budding screen idol client, a sexy young drifter, and the drifter’s naive, needy girlfriend. THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED follows the adventures of Mitchell Green, a movie star who could hit big if it weren’t for one teensy-weensy problem. His agent, Diane, can’t seem to keep him in the closet. Trying to help him navigate Hollywood’s choppy waters, the devilish Diane is doing all she can to keep Mitchell away from the cute rent boy who’s caught his eye and the rent boy’s girlfriend (wait, the rent boy has a girlfriend?). Will there be a happy ending as the final credits roll?
