The 25th anniversary edition of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ Gypsy of the Year Competition will be presented Dec. 9 at 4:30 PM and Dec. 10 at 2 PM at the Minskoff Theatre.
Gypsy of the Year is the culmination of six weeks of intensive fundraising by Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies. The show features a display of singers and dancers from the ensembles of numerous shows, known as “gypsies.” Awards are presented to the top fundraisers and for the best presentation during the two performances.
The awards will be announced at the end of the Dec. 10 performance by Cherry Jones, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Jones also will be joined by her castmates from this season’s critically acclaimed The Glass Menagerie revival – Celia Keenan-Bolger, Zachary Quinto and Brian J. Smith. Other celebrity presenters scheduled to appear include Stephen DeRosa, Rick Holmes and Lindsay Mendez.
Tickets, starting as low as $20, remain available. They can be purchased online at broadwaycares.org or by calling (212) 840-0770, ext. 268.
