TAILS Musical in 2 acts: Book and lyrics by Mark Masi, music by Jess Platt 45th Street Theatre; Previews from June 7, 2006; Opened June 18, 2006; Closed July 2, 2006; (11 previews, 15 performances) SYNOPSIS "Tails" is the story of five dogs in a pound, played by actors not in dog-suits but in costumes that give an impression of their canine nature -- a poodle wears ruffles, and ripped jeans and bandaged hand suggest a tough street dog. The dogs wait and hope to be chosen for adoption. The dogs include Speagle, the love-smitten mongrel; Sophie, the show dog; and a new puppy surrounded by mystery. The drama focuses on the arrival of a battered young dog named Ozzie who is afraid of people, until he learns from the others that he has to trust them and get adopted if he is to survive and escape the fate that awaits unclaimed dogs.
