Meet Chico and Bill - Chico is now known as Bruiser in LEGALLY BLONDE, THE MUSICAL – and now on Broadway! Bill Berloni is well known as William Berloni’s Theatrical Animals who trains animals for stage, screen and television. Bill’s passion is helping homeless animals at shelters -- he uses this passion when trying out animals for the entertainment field and when friends ask his help in adopting a pet. Bill and over 30 of his animals that he has at his Connecticut home (the animal actor’s retirement home) were recently spotlighted on CBS-TV SUNDAY MORNING.
Chico was chosen from among the dogs awaiting adoption at the Society's Newark facility, and we were thrilled that he landed the main role as Bruiser. Backstage there are two understudies for Chico who are trained for his part. Boo Boo and Teddie are two English Bulldogs who are also featured in the play.
Bill will not train primates, wild animals or predators. He has won awards from the ASPCA and the American Humane Association. According to Clive Barnes of the NEW YORK POST, "the performances are as cozily right as the show’s beautifully trained Chihuahua and bulldog". LEGALLY BLONDE, THE MUSICAL is currently playing at Broadway’s Palace Theater and was nominated for 7 Tony Awards!
