Rescue Pup is on the Yellow Brick Road to Stardom
In a statement released to the New York Times, Berloni said: "After thirty years of rescuing dogs for Broadway shows which began with Sandy (who shot to stardom in the original production of Annie), I know talent when I see it. After speaking to the shelter about his personality I knew he had star potential. I predict a great future for him."
Nigel will star Off-Broadway – alongside R&B star Ashanti in the role of Dorothy – from June 12 through July 5.
