The Main Stage


“Whether it’s music, theater or film, the Bickford Theatre has consistently impressed me with the quality of its presentations. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how this venue continues to grow in the years to come.”
Jay Lustig, NJ Arts

A Dog Story (NJ Premiere)
Book by Eric H. Weinberger
Music and Lyrics by Gayla D. Morgan
April 12 to April 22, 2018

A charming new musical comedy about Roland, a career-driven lawyer, who thinks he must be married to get the partnership he desperately wants.  So he follows the advice of his best buddy, Guy, and gets a puppy named Cupid as a chick magnet for his Hamptons vacation.   With first dates, angry tangos, and a sudden disappearance, Roland ends up discovering there’s more to life when you “get a dog!”

This show is nominated for Broadway World’s Best New Off-Broadway album.
