Original Broadway Cast of Grease to Reunite at Gypsy of the Year
Among the participating Grease stars are Barry Bostwick (Danny), Carole Demas (Sandy), Adrienne Barbeau (Betty Rizzo), Alan Paul (Teen Angel/Johnny Casino) and Walter Bobbie (Roger). Also joining the opening number reunion are original cast members Don Billett (Vince Fontaine), James Canning (Doody), Daniel Douglas (Burger Palace Boy), Katie Hanley (Marty), Tom Harris (Eugene), Ilene Kristen (Patty Simcox), Joy Rinaldi (Pink Lady) and Mews Small (Frenchy).
Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the event is the culmination of six weeks of intensive fundraising by Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies. It's also a sensational display of the most talented singers and dancers in the chorus of shows, known as "gypsies." Awards are presented to the top fundraisers and for the best presentation during the two performances. This year's Gypsy of the Year will again be hosted by Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky.
