Subject: Launce and Crab
Dear list -
I am thinking about directing Two Gents next fall for my high school
advanced acting class, and I was wondering about your experiences with

Have you seen (or been involved in) productions with a live dog? what
type/size? problems or pluses?
Have you seen (or been involved in) productions with something other

Have you seen BOTH types, or multiple productions? How did they compare?
I had a real dog for toto in THE WIZ last year, but he had very little
Thanks for your input,
Susan St. John
