In his new Playbill Experience event, Tails From The Stage, audiences will meet Bill and his cuddly animal companions, hear stories from the stage, learn what it takes to work with animals in a live setting, and virtually interact with his friends—both furry and human! The first performance will focus on Annie April 11 at 3 PM ET with special guest Andrea McArdle, Broadway's original Annie.
Berloni is a widely recognized expert in animal behavior, known for his dedication to animal rescue work and with more than twenty Broadway credits to his name. Those credits include three productions of Annie as well as the 2019 Tony Award winner for Best Play The Ferryman. In 2011, he was awarded a Tony Honor for Excellence in Theatre for his work training animals on stage.
