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 Puccini... who's been dead 100 years. Sam can't say no to her boss. She can say no to Clark, a shy colleague so smitten he writes poetry about her. Will the driven Sam and the insecure Clark find love - and Clark's lost pooch? All roads lead to the climactic scene in a Village opera café, where Sam & Clark & C.E.O. sit down to… dinner with Puccini.
