About this show

This year's Gypsy of the Year Competition is one for the history books as BC/EFA creates a special opening number in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original Broadway production of West Side Story. The number, a medley of songs from the show, will feature two time Tony Award winner, Chita Rivera (Anita) and her original West Side Story co-stars including Mickey Callan (Riff), Carol Lawrence (Maria), Ken LeRoy (Bernardo), Jamie Sanchez (Chino) and Reri Grist (Consuelo) who debuted the now classic ballad "Somewhere". The Gypsy of the Year Competition is the event of fall theatre season as the New York theatrical community gathers to see "gypsies," chorus members from Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, participate in a competition/variety show known as the Gypsy of the Year Competition. The competition is traditionally the culmination of intense fundraising efforts made by the theatrical community.
