‘Broadway Barks’ is Giving Broadway to the Dogs this Weekend

The sounds you’ll be hearing on Broadway this weekend may be quite a bit less than a falsetto, and more like a howl — but it’s all for a good cause.

On Saturday, July 8th, Broadway Barks will be taking over Shubert Alley for its 19th charity event featuring stage stars teaming up to find adoptable animals their forever homes.

Even if you’re not ready to take home a fluffy friend, there’s no reason to skip the free event. Bernadette Peters, who founded the annual tradition with late actress Mary Tyler Moore, will host with her Mozart in the Jungle co-star Malcolm McDowell.

Familiar faces from the theater, including recent Tony winners Gavin Creel (Hello, Dolly!) and Rachel Bay Jones (Dear Evan Hansen) will also be on hand.

The event, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will begin at 3 p.m., and celebrity presentations of adoptable pets start at 5 p.m.

You can also donate to the cause online at BroadwayBarks.com.

  1. I would love to attend this, but I need to know, will they allow pet into the show? i have two dachshunds I can’t leave at home, since they panic (a lot) when I’m not there. They are also therapy dogs, that help me when I have my seizures. They’re wonderful when they’re with me, no problem at all. In fact my CVS would gladly vouch for them. They’re quite the pair. So please, let me know, can I bring them? I would love to be there, and I know they would too.
