Society Adoptee Romeo A Huge Star!!

Romeo was once named Escobar, a neglected and mistreated dog. For 3 years he lived as a junkyard dog under the worst conditions possible, until he found his way to the Society where he began his journey to wellness. He was spotted by long-time friend and AHS supporter, Bill Berloni of William Berloni Theatrical Animals. He was looking for an English Bulldog for an upcoming stage production of Threepenny Opera. (Read Romeo's full story here.)

In Bill's hands, Romeo not only became a star, but, according to many NY newspaper reviews, the highlight of the production! Read more about Romeo's rise to stardom below.

NY Post Review


"An English bulldog plays a minor role in the new production of “The Threepenny Opera” that opened at the Atlantic Theater Company on Monday. Romeo is his name, and he acts very naughty in the tableau that opens the show, slobbering away at the leg of a streetwalker who’s passed out flat on the ground. Still, Romeo is as cute as can be and looks as if he wouldn’t have a mean bite, even if, say, you slapped a tiara on his head and asked him to do his best impression of Queen Victoria". - NY Times

"In the single most memorable scene, a bulldog (Romeo) appears as a cross-dressing, cross-species Queen Victoria, dragged along in a chariot. It’s a surreal visual that underlines the ridiculousness of pomp and circumstance." - NY Post

"This is a rough and slinky production, condensed to a little more than two hours. It is relatively free of tricked-up effects, unless you count the charismatic, absurdly well-behaved bulldog that licks corpses, hangs out with the gangsters and, spoiler alert, plays Queen Victoria at the coronation with a killer deadpan." - Newdsay

"It’s not a good sign when a show’s most memorable and colorful performance comes from the four-legged cast member. But that’s the way it goes for the Atlantic Theater Company’s anemic and sometimes tinny-sounding reboot of “The Threepenny Opera.” The production gets a lift any time Romeo, a charismatic English Bulldog, arrives to slobber at an unconscious beggar’s leg or in full coronation garb". - DAILY NEWS
