Broadway Barks 12!

Broadway Barks is tomorrow!

It's the twelfth annual dog and cat adopt-a-thon, founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, in Shubert Alley from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.   The event also raises money to support no-kill animal shelters.

To mark the event and raise awareness for animal adoption, the Empire State Building is lit purple, pink and yellow from June 10-12th.

Beginning at 3:30, New York area animal shelters will be on hand with plenty of pets for adoption or information on how you can adopt a cat or dog.

From 5:30 to 6:30, Bernadette and Mary will host an adoptable dog and cat show in which a number of pets for adoption will presented by Broadway stars including Brooke Adams, Kevin Chamberlin, Katie Finneran, Montego Glover, Tony Goldwyn, Ruthie Henshall, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Beth Leavel, Judy McLane, Michael Mastro, Jan Maxwell, Tony Shalhoub, Richard Thomas, and Ace Young, George Akram, Fred Applegate, Brooks Ashmankas, Corbin Bleu, Kristin Chenoweth, Veanne Cox, Erin Davie, Robin De Jesús, John Dossett, Gina Ferrell, Kelsey Grammer, Alexander Hanson, Sean Hayes, Jackie Hoffman, Karl Kenzler, Chad Kimball, Leigh Ann Larkin, Karen Olivo, Loretta Ables Sayre and Josefina Scaglione, among others.

At 7:15 p.m., Bernadette will sign copies of her latest book, “Stella is a Star!” in the lobby of the Schoenfeld Theatre.  Bernadette's previous book, Broadway Barks , is a New York Times best seller.  Each of the books feature cd's of Bernadette reading the stories and singing the songs she composed herself.   Both books are also about her own adopted dogs, Stella and Kramer.   Bernadette donates all of her proceeds from sales of the books to Broadway Barks.
