Sean Hayes to join Mary Tyler Moore in ‘Broadway Barks’
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters aren’t just a couple of showbiz legends who allowed their names to be used for “Broadway Barks,” an annual dog and cat adoption event that benefits New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies.
They are well-known animal lovers and have been the best of friends since they met during the filming of The Last Best Year, an outstanding and deeply moving 1990 television film in which both actresses delivered what are among the finest dramatic performances of their stellar career.
I’ve never forgotten the movie because I burst out crying while watching it. Bernadette plays a lonely woman dying of cancer and all she wants to do is meet the son she gave up for adoption before she dies. Mary played a psychologist helping her who can no longer keep the personal and professional boundaries.
Anyway, the seven-time Emmy winner Moore and two-time Tony winner Peters co-hosted Broadway Bares for the 12th year over the weekend in Shubert Alley.
