Broadway Barks

Yesterday the Farmboyz and I headed down to Schubert Alley for Broadway Barks, the 9th annual pet adoptathon created and hosted by Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters and presented by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The casts and stars of virtually every Broadway show made appearances, from Xanadu's studly Cheyenne Jackson (left) to Tony winners David Hyde Pierce, Beth Leavel, and Angela Lansbury. Each of the performers took the stage with a dog to tell its story and plead for the puppy to have a new home.

Would you believe my highlight of the afternoon was seeing Jo Anne Worley? She has joined the cast of Drowsy Chaperone as Mrs. Tottendale. Ms. Worley dove right into the press pit and began taking pictures of the guys taking pictures of her. Still a riot. The afternoon was a big success - I think I heard an announcement that all the animals on hand were adopted, although they could have been referring to just one of the many agencies on site.
