Expect the unexpected at Best in Shows, a one-night-only cabaret featuring Broadway stars serenading cute dogs. The evening benefits and honors The Humane Society of New York, loving and protecting New York City’s animals since 1904.

The sixth annual Best in Shows – Broadway Legends Honor the Humane Society of New York, presented by Dorothy and Bill Berloni, will have music direction by Seth Rudetsky, who will also host the star-studded show featuring Broadway’s brightest performers, joined by surprise two and four-legged guests, to be announced. Andy Karl and Orfeh will be awarded this year’s Humane Society of New York’s Sandy Fund Award in recognition of their deep concern and support of the needs of rescued animals.

Bill & Sandy 

The Sandy Fund
In 1976, Bill Berloni rescued the first “Sandy” dog, just hours before he was slated to be put to sleep. The once abused and abandoned dog went on to become a star in the debut of Broadway’s “Annie”. It was the first time that a dog was cast to perform in a live show, and Sandy became known as “the longest running dog on Broadway,” never missing a performance in over seven years. Bill and Sandy began a life and career together. It was an adventure that lasted until Sandy’s passing sixteen years later.

In his memory, Bill and his wife, Dorothy, established the Sandy Fund of The Humane Society of New York. The Fund helps the Society underwrite lifesaving care for the needs of homeless dogs and cats.
