(NJ) May 1-17, 2020, GO, DOG. GO! May 1st at 7:30PM. Other Performances: Saturdays & Sundays at 4:00PM (Time is subject to change). P.D. Eastman’s classic children’s book comes to life on stage in an exploration of movement, color and space. The dogs delve into life with gusto, creating a visual spectacle for the audience to feast upon. They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They sing and dance and climb trees. This is a rollicking free-for-all of chicanine-ery. A big and little musical world of doggy fun. Like a pop-up book that comes to life – and never stops. Recommended Age: ENTIRE FAMILY.
