Broadway's best and brightest will dance, sing and celebrate six weeks of intensive fundraising as they come together for the 26th Annual Gypsy of the Year.
The annual event is the culminating chapter of six weeks of fundraising by Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies. Casts, crews and dozens of volunteers give of their time to take their places at theatre exits, accepting donations in Broadway Cares' famous red buckets. Many shows also are offering autographed Playbills, posters and unique experiences in exchange for a donation. Watch the video above for peek backstage at how Alan Cumming and the cast of Cabaret prepare for collections.
For two magical afternoons, the best singers and dancers in the ensembles of shows, known as "gypsies," perform original skits, songs and dances. Awards are presented to the top fundraisers and for the best presentation during the two shows.
Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol is a delightful retelling of the Dickens classic, featuring the comically myopic cartoon character Quincy Magoo. Originally airing in December 1962, "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" was the first animated holiday special ever produced specifically for television.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the programs and services of The Actors Fund, the national human services organization that helps everyone in performing arts and entertainment.
After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit season opener Much Ado About Nothing, What Dreams May Co Shakespeare continues their exploration into the dangers and the delights of love. It's risks, it's rewards, it's passion and it's price. Join us for the finale of our 2014 season as we bring to life this timeless couple whose tale embodies all these qualities with uproarious laughter, with unrestrained joy, and with unfathomable sorrow.
Director Chris Rivera brings literatures most famous and most tragic pair of star-crossed lovers into a gritty modern fantasy. Audiences will find themselves pulled into a world where religion turns the pages, family politics pulls the strings, and lives lived by the sword…are ended by it.
