NEW YORK (AP) -- The chance to work on Broadway with Woody Allen, Zach Braff and Susan Stroman were strong lures, but being able to cradle a dog onstage for the first time may have been the clincher for Tony Award-winner Karen Ziemba.
Ziemba has signed on to play Eden Brent, an aggressively perky actress, in the upcoming musical adaptation of Allen's crime caper "Bullets Over Broadway." A tiny dog named Mister Woofles will be her constant companion.
Says the actress: "This will be the first time I will actually be working with a live animal onstage."
Ziemba won a Tony for "Contact" and also starred on Broadway in "Curtains" and "Steel Pier."
