Citing high audience interest, The Old Globe is extending the run of the world premiere of “Dog and Pony” for one week until July 6.

The new musical, with book by Rick Elice, co-writer of “Jersey Boys,” and music and lyrics by Michael Patrick Walker, began performances on May 28 and opened June 5 with an original closing date of June 29.

“Dog and Pony” is a romantic musical comedy that follows Mags and Andy, a successful screenwriting team, as their professional relationship evolves into something more. It takes a witty and irreverent look at what women want and whether men fit the bill.

Tickets start at $35 and are available online at TheOldGlobe.org.

The Old Gobe notes that the Cabrillo Bridge has reopened so patrons can now drive into Balboa Park on Laurel Street from the west side of the park.
