Oh, what a beautiful Broadway Bear. Curly, as played in the 2002 Broadway revival by Patrick Wilson (who signed the bear), is decked out in leather chaps, boots and — of course — a cowboy hat, to portray this cowpoke in love with the land and farm girl Laurey.

Broadway Bears VI, the annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS auction of one-of-a-kind Broadway Bears, will be held at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill, Feb. 17. Alvin Colt, William Ivey Long, Theoni V. Aldredge, Jane Greenwood and Julie Taymor are among the designers of this year's cub club, with subjects to include Gary Beach (The Producers), Adam Pascal (Rent), Judy Garland in concert at the Palace and Lucille Ball (Wildcat).
