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

An entrancing 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 friend and gets a puppy 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 was nominated for Broadway World’s Best New Off-Broadway album.


“Directed by the always superb Eric Hafen this staging takes us through the highs and lows of pet ownership and young love. It’s a fun night, not to be missed!”
– Jacklyn Layman, Broadway World

“A sweet little musical that will bring a smile to the faces of the audience.”
– Allen Neuner, Out in Jersey

“Bickford Theatre’s ‘A Dog Story’ is cute and cuddly ”
Jay Lustig – NJ Arts

“The book by Eric H. Weinberger and music and lyrics by Gayla D. Morgan are replete with clever sticky lines and tunes whose hooks you’ll be humming while they’re happening and as you’re walking from the theatre.”
Sherrie Rase, [Q] on Stage
