Society Rescue - now Romeo - in The Threepenny Opera thru May 4th



The stage light dims … the curtain raises and the spotlight shines on Romeo … once known as Escobar.(photo right). He lived a miserably disregarded existence – he was sick, had kennel cough, two cherry eyes that hampered his vision; a grimy dog that had been neglected and ignored. But with all of the mistreatment and negligence he experienced in his 3 years, it never dampened his enthusiasm and love for humans.

At the same time, long-time friend and AHS supporter, Bill Berloni of William Berloni Theatrical Animals in New York City was searching for an English Bulldog. Bill visited the Society’s Newark facility and immediately fell in love with this wonderful guy. Escobar was given all necessary medical care and surgery for the cherry eyes … and then it was off to Bill’s home where he met plenty of other dogs, farm animals and a llama.

His SAG card now reads Romeo! Last summer, he made his professional debut in LEGALLY BLONDE.

Romeo is making his Off-Broadway, New York debut at the prestigious Linda Gross Theater at 336 West 20th St. in a revival of a musical called THREE PENNY OPERA presented by the Atlantic Theater Company. According to Bill, Romeo has some very funny bits in it. The play will run until May 4th. AHS has been credited in Romeo’s bio. In his bio, Rufus thanks director Martha Clarke for giving him his first serious role. You can check out the Atlantic Theater website.

The finale to this special story is each wonderful dog with a beautiful soul that arrives should become center stage in his life.

Read about Romeo's huge success as the star of The Threepenny Opera!
