After a long week of treading the boards, what better way for performers to unwind than with the affection of a furry friend? In one of BroadwayWorld's newest series, Tails of Broadway, photographer Jessica Fallon Gordon is capturing priceless moments between Broadway's brightest stars and their pets.
In this edition, meet A BRONX TALE star Ariana DeBose's feline friends, Izzy and Freddy!
Name: Isadora 'Izzy' Duncan & Frederick 'Freddy' Douglass. They just seemed to fit their personalities. She's a little diva & he's got a lot to say ;)
Breed: She's a Calico & he's a Russian Blue.
How long you've owned: since November 2015.
Adoption story: Our little lovers were abandoned on our street. I woke up one morning to meditate. I finished my meditation to "meow?!?!" My partner, Jill, had gone and brought them in from the rain. We bathed them and shortly after got them to a vet. The rest is history. Our intention was to be foster parents, but now we can't bear the thought of separating them. We're a happy lil family.
Favorite thing to do with your pet: Snuggle & dance :) They dance between my legs while we listen to Pandora. The Bollywood station is Izzy's favorite.
The naughtiest thing your pet has done: Peed on my couch. I was not thrilled.
What would your pet's catch-phrase be:
Izzy: "... but I'm pretty!?"
Freddy: "COME PLAY WITH ME," spoken in a Russian accent.
