From Westminster to Broadway: Banana Joe Graces Stage of ‘Edwin Drood’
I’m willing to bet that a Venn diagram showing fans of the Westminster Dog Show and Broadway musicals has a pretty large center, so it doesn’t particularly surprise me that Banana Joe, the affenpinscher named Best in Show last night at the venerable kennel club’s dog show, will be getting his own walk-on in the second act of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. He’ll literally be swooped on stage by star Stephanie J. Block (bad news for Macaco, the dog Block usually carries with her) at tonight’s performance at Studio 54. Is this the first time someone (or something) named Banana Joe has visited Studio 54? I highly doubt it.
