WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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.
