January 10, 2006: Lean, mean, brash, crass and about as deep as a shot glass, Diane the Hollywood agent is just the tonic New York theatergoers need in the gray depths of an urban winter. Played by Julie White in an irresistible adrenaline rush of a performance, Diane can be thought of as the wicked witch or the fairy godmother of "The Little Dog Laughed," the tangy new fable of fame and its discontents by Douglas Carter Beane that opened last night at the Second Stage Theater. Either way, she's certainly more of a pick-me-up than your average jukebox musical.READ THE REVIEW

Forget all the holier than thou Oscar speeches -- what everyone really loves about Hollywood is the down and dirty dish. The players in Douglas Carter Beane's deliciously biting farce, The Little Dog Laughed, include a screen idol hiding in the closet, an ambitious male prostitute and his naïve girlfriend, and a brash, driven Hollywood agent who can spin anyone and anything. Maybe.
