Broadway Barks 16

If you happened to be passing by Shubert Alley on Saturday afternoon, you might have noticed an unusually high concentration of dogs and cats, as well as Broadway fans. That's because Broadway Barks returned for its 16th annual star-studded event to encourage pet adoption and support for the city's many animal shelters. There were representatives from ASPCA, Loving Touch, Kitty Kind, BARC, Stray from the Heart, Animal Haven and many others. Broadway Barks is the brainchild of Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters.

There were other critters prowling 'round the alley: stage animals. Stars from many current shows appeared to help promote adoption and raise awareness. They included Tony Award hoarder Audra McDonald of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill; Zach Braff, Heléne Yorke, Brooks Ashmanskas, Nick Cordero and Karen Ziemba from Bullets Over Broadway; Margo Siebert and Andy Karl from Rocky; Danny Burstein, Linda Emond and Bill Heck from Cabaret; Newly minted Tony winner Lena Hall from Hedwig and the Angry Inch; and Norm Lewis, who recently stepped into the title role of The Phantom of the Opera. 

Time Out was there to snap photos, above, interspersed with several generously supplied by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. Enjoy—and then go adopt a sweet pooch or kitty. Barring that, you can always donate.
