Pooch

A new musical comedy


A brilliant female exec.
A clueless male boss.
And a dog.
Only in New York could they
cross paths, in search of love,
success – and Puccini.


Book, Music & Lyrics by Scott Eyerly

POOCH is a zany musical set in present day Manhattan, based on real events. A once-proud classical music label has been taken over by a conglomerate that makes dog food. They install a new C.E.O. who knows nothing about music. He hears that one classical artist is making a fortune – so he orders Samantha, his new Sales Director, to set up dinner with him. Unfortunately, that artist is Puccini. "Sam," our driven and brilliant leading lady, will do anything to defeat her latest clueless boss – who doesn't believe Puccini’s dead. POOCH tells the story of Sam's triumph over a powerful man, and her romance with a charmingly insecure one. All roads lead to the climactic scene in a Village opera café, where Sam and her boss sit down to… dinner with Puccini.
