Cityscape: Broadway Tails

by George Bodarky, Morlene Chin, Julie Clark
Annie with her dog Sandy

Annie the Musical

From the pound to a Broadway stage.

In the musical Annie, the lead character meets and comforts a stray dog named Sandy.  Every dog that’s played Sandy since Annie’s world premiere in 1976 has been a rescue. 

On this week's Cityscape, we'll meet the man who found and trained that original Sandy, and has since turned countless other shelter animals into Broadway and Hollywood stars.  William Berloni writes about rescuing animals and turning them into stars in his book Broadway Tails: Heartfelt Stories of Rescued Dogs Who Became Showbiz Superstars.
