I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tales From the Stage With Bill Berloni

Bill Berloni is a renowned Broadway, TV, and movie, animal trainer. He got his start when he was asked to find and train the dog to play Sandy in the original production of Annie back in 1977 although he did not actually set out to be an animal trainer. He originally wanted to be an actor. 

Now 44 years later, Berloni has worked on a multitude of productions including Legally Blonde, The Ferryman, numerous incarnations of Annie and The Wizard of Oz, and more. He has plenty of interesting stories to tell about his experiences. Accordingly, Playbill is now offering Tales From the Stage with Bill Berloni as part of their Broadway Selects program of online theater-related offerings. Each episode focuses on a different show Berloni worked on and is available for livestreaming. 

The first episode which highlighted his work on Annie aired yesterday, April 11, 2021, and the next which will focus on Legally Blonde will air in two weeks on  Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 3:00 PM. Tickets to view the livestream are available at the Playbill store as are other Playbill experiences including A Showbiz quiz event, a London Theater virtual tour and more. All Playbill Selects are livestreams and can only be watched at the time they air. They are not available to watch on demand.

Tales From the Stage not only gives you the opportunity to hear Berloni's interesting stories of his work on a particular show, but you may get to meet one of the animal's that worked on the show, hear from special guest's who were part of the show (the Annie episode featured Shelley Bruce the second person ever to play Annie on Broadway who filled in for the ill Andrea McCardle who was the first), and/or get a few training tips. Whether you are a Broadway lover or an animal lover or both, the series is definitely a must-see. It's fascinating and fun!
