Westminster's "Best in Show" Pooch Will Chew Scenery in Broadway Debut at Edwin Drood Feb. 13
13 Feb 2013
The affenpinscher Banana Joe, the "Best in Show" winner of the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Feb. 12, will make a cameo appearance in the Feb. 13 evening performance of Broadway's The Mystery of Edwin Drood, filling in for Macaco, the Yorkie/Maltese mix that usually appears in the musical.
A grand-style Act Two entrance by actress Stephanie J. Block (who plays Edwin Drood) includes a pooch in hand. Macaco will play the Wednesday matinee and return Thursday.
Banana Joe's handler Ernesto Lara and co-owner and breeder Mieke Cooijmans, along with the Roundabout Theatre Company's cast of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the musical comedy murder mystery, will take post-show photos with the canine star (while Macaco gets quietly drunk at the Paramount Hotel bar, perhaps).
