SPACE DOGS is an epic new musical that tells the mind-blowing true story of Laika and the Chief Designer — a stray dog and the top-secret Russian scientist who sent her to space during the Cold War. Written and performed by actor-musicians Van Hughes and Nick Blaemire, it is a sweeping, kaleidoscopic tale of invention, betrayal, international political intrigue, and the immortal friendship that exists between man and dog, as they journey together to the stars.

The astronomical Space Dogs musical centers on a classified Russian scientist called the Chief Designer and Laika, a stray dog who became one of the first animals in space and the first-ever animal to orbit the Earth. The Chief Designer arranged the mission during the Cold War as a test experiment that was fated from the start. While Laika’s mission was pivotal to the future of space travel, she was not expected to survive. In between the day she was rescued from the street and her death, a story unfolded about the bond between the dog and the Designer, developed as they literally shot for the stars together.
Van Hughes and Nick Blaemire wrote and star in Space Dogs off Broadway. Hughes has previously appeared on Broadway in American Idiot, Spring Awakening, 9 to 5 and Hairspray. Blaemire has appeared in the 2011 Broadway revival of Godspell and the 2019 national tour of Falsettos, among other credits. Both are also composers — Hughes mainly of film scores and the Off-Broadway musical Burn All Night, and Blaemire of the 2008 musical Glory Days — and Space Dogs marks their first professional collaboration with each other and director Ellie Heyman.
