Three-time Tony recipient Bernadette Peters appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan July 14 ahead of Broadway Barks Across America to give a sneak preview of the virtual event July 16. Check it out above.
Peters shared that among the highlights fans can look forward to is a re-staging of "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" from Hello, Dolly!. The number will be performed online rather than in Shubert Alley, where Broadway Barks of years past have taken place.
In addition, the Broadway star traded quarantine dog stories with Kelly Ripa, saying her dog walks around in a kimono, smoking cigarettes, and asking where dinner is. "Mine drinks martinis," Ripa replied.
The annual dog and cat adoption event, co-founded by Peters and the late Mary Tyler Moore, goes digital due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Among the celebrities scheduled to appear are Hugh Jackman, Audra McDonald, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
