Fracaswell Hyman directs the tale of a New York callboy, a closeted Hollywood actor and his relentless agent who will stop at nothing to provide a Hollywood ending for their predicament. Little Dog will officially open Aug. 20 and continue through Sept. 13. The company includes Neal Bledsoe as movie star Mitchell with Quinlan Corbett as his callboy Alex, Megan Hill as Alex's girlfriend Ellen and Christa Scott-Reed as Mitchell's scene-stealing agent, Diane.

"Douglas Carter Beane's comedy of manners in a world without manners is fearless and deft in parsing the meaning of happiness in the cruelest most miserable business known to man, that business we like to call Show, which here might well be standing in for America itself," said Intiman associate artistic director Craig Lucas in a statement.

The Intiman creative team includes scenic designer Matthew Smucker, costume designer Elizabeth Hope Clancy, lighting designer Greg Sullivan and sound designer Joseph Swartz.

Tickets for productions at the Intiman, 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center, can be purchased by calling (206) 269-1900.
