Over the years the auction - at which blue-faced teddy bears made up as Broadway's best loved characters are sold to the highest bidder - has become on of the season's most looked forward to events. Host Bryan Batt (La Cage aux Folles), seen at left above Dame Edna Everage and Maureen McGovern (Little Women), provided some spark for the auction, held at the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill at 237 West 42nd Street in Manhattan.
