Fun for the whole family, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You have younger children (ages 5-10) who know and enjoy the books. Subtle nods to classic Broadway delight adults.

Don't see it if Your children don’t know the books or do not like multiple lights and sounds. Show is definitely high energy and could upset sensitive kids

“Seeing an off-Broadway musical is fun, but it's even more fun to make your own. Hopefully, the kids seeing 'Dog Man' will follow George and Harold's example.”

CRITIC'S PICK! "‘Dog Man: The Musical’ Celebrates a Cop Who Sniffs Out Crime. The bizarro, irreverent world of Dav Pilkey, the creator of the Captain Underpants books, has been deftly translated to the Lucille Lortel Theater’s stage."

"The players all do a fine job. Owen-who barks, yips and howls his spoken lines and lyrics-makes Dog Man a big galumphing sweetheart. Children at the performance under review seemed particularly enamored of Davidson's winsome Li'l Petey. Adults, on the other hand, may take more of a shine to LaVerdiere's scrumptiously villainous big Petey, who is funniest precisely when his attempts at being suave and cool falter-just as with actual felines that scramble to save face after not landing gracefully on all four feet."

A Best Bet "Your Favorite Kid's Favorite Book Come To Life…'Dog Man: The Musical' is structurally sturdy and sophisticated in its storytelling…but also a silly, buoyant burst of energy…that at its heart is about two nutty kids, discovering the joy of live theater for the first time."
