Broadway Barks 11 is July 11th in Shubert Alley!

Eleven is the lucky number for Broadway Barks as it celebrates its 11th anniversary in Shubert Alley this Saturday, July 11th! Broadway Barks, founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, benefits New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies by raising money and awareness, as well as promoting adoption of shelter animals.

The celebration begins with Bernadette signing her delightful children's book, a New York Times Bestseller, Broadway Barks, at 1:00 in Shubert Alley.

At 3:30, an auction of cool stuff and celebrity-autographed memorabilia will begin.

At 5:30, presentations of pets from citywide animal shelters will begin. For the presentation of pets, Bernadette and Mary will be joined by a number of Broadway stars, including Elizabeth Ashley, Jayne Atkinson, Stephanie J. Block, Matt Cavenaugh, Michael Cerveris, Gavin Creel, Hope Davis, Christine Ebersole, Rupert Everett, Tovah Feldshuh, Sutton Foster, John Glover, Lauren Graham, Kate Jennings Grant, Haydn Gwynne, Ernie Hudson, Allison Janney, Gregory Jbara, Andy Karl, Marc Kudisch, Angela Lansbury, Michael Mastro, Audra McDonald, Judy McLane, Constantine Maroulis , Karen Olivo, David Hyde Pierce, Alice Ripley, Bryce Ryness, Christopher Sieber, J. Robert Spencer, Will Swenson, John Tartaglia, Harriet Walter, Chandler Williams, and famed Broadway animal trainer, Bill Berloni with his pal, Nigel (Toto in The Wiz at Encores!)

I can't go! I want a pet too much and the temptation will be too great!

Joseph, what's stopping you?

Roxie, sure you can come - they don't olet you take home a pet that easily anyway. It's almost harder to adopt a pet in NYC than it is a baby.

I am excited to see Nigel!

Oh, and the presenters as well ;)

It kills me that I can never even submit an application to adopt a pet; but in fairness I know I work and play too far from Staten Island to be home for proper care of an animal.

Some day.

Hahaa I always thought you could just adopt one right there. For the best, probably!
