News   16th Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition Sets Dates The 16th Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition — benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS — will be held on Dec. 6 and 7 at a theatre to be announced.

The annual competition comes after six weeks of intensive fundraising by various shows on and off Broadway as well as touring productions throughout the country. It's a chance to celebrate the Broadway gypsies while raising funds for the worthy organization. Awards are presented in two categories: for best skit and for most money raised for BC/EFA. Last season, the competition raised a record-breaking $3,359,000. Best skit honors went to Aida with Urinetown as first runner-up. The Boy From Oz — starring Hugh Jackman — raised the most money for BC/EFA, $633,000, an all-time high for one show. Other front-runners: Hairspray, $303,024; Phantom, $155,964; and Gypsy, $147,366.
