Broadway's Gone to the Dogs

There was a time not all that long ago when Cats ruled Broadway.  For the last 15 years, Broadway has been ruled by a certain Lion monarch.  But this season, another set of four-legged creatures has quietly taken over the hearts of Broadway fans.  No less than three shows on the Great White Way feature scene-stealing dogs.  What a treat for those of us who love a cuddle with a canine!

Best Exit by a Pup on Broadway: Macaco in The Mystery of Edwin Drood at Studio 54

His Performance: He practically steals the scene in which his scene-stealing owner, Miss Alice Nutting, is trying once again to upstage her fellow Thespians of the Music Hall Royale.  In real-life, Macaco is Stephanie J. Block (and Sebastian Arcelus)'s pet Yorkie/Maltese mix.

Best Running (Literally) Joke by a Pair of Pups on Broadway: Pete and Lily as The Bumpus Hounds in A Christmas Story: The Musical at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre

Their Performance:  The Old Man may be running in terror to get in the house before the Bumpus Hounds bite, but the audiences at A Christmas Story are "awww"-ing their heads off every time these two adorable Purebread Bloodhounds take the stage.  Broadway's own dog whisperer, Bill Berloni,  rescued these two from a Canadian shelter and we are all the better for it!

Best Partner in Crime on Broadway: Sunny as Sandy in Annie at the Palace Theatre

Her Performance:  Sunny recreates probably the most iconic Broadway role ever played by a pooch.  She was plucked from a Houston, Texsas shelter with less than 24 hours to go before her time was up by Bill Berloni.  As sweet as her "human," Annie, Sunny is a Sandy to be remembered!
