In Broadway Tails, Bill tells the true stories of "throw-away" animals who came back to co-star with some of entertainment's biggest names, from Richard Burton to Sarah Jessica Parker. Here you'll meet:
- The original Sandy, who starred for seven years in Annie
- "St. Vito," the deaf bull terrier, who saved the show
- Pi, the first dog to dance with the New York City Ballet
- Chico, the Chihuahua with attitude who became the face of one of Broadway's newest hits
Often funny, and always touching, these and other stories demonstrate the extraordinary things rescued animals can do.
