Featuring a cast of young, good-looking stars recognizable from stage, film and television, Dog Sees God revisits the characters immortalized by Charles Schultz in his Peanuts comic strip. This time around however, the gang has outgrown their lovable roots and turned into "a missing pen pal, an abused pianist, a pyromaniac ex-girlfriend, two drunk cheerleaders, a homphobic quarterback, a burnt-out Buddhist and a drama-queen sister," according to production notes. At left, co-star Ari Graynor, Royal, Matthew Morrison, co-stars Kelli Garner and Eliza Dushku are seen after the performance. Below, the cast gave their curtain call at the Century Center for the Performing Arts, then headed to Lucy Latin Kitchen on East 18th Street, where actors Keith Nobbs and Eddie Kaye Thomas helped to celebrate the opening night of Dog Sees God.
