At three consecutive Saturday matinees starting Nov. 22, the Equus cast will auction off the Lucky Brand jeans worn in the play by Radcliffe, who will autograph the jeans live.

Proceeds will benefit the show's fall fundraising drive for BC/EFA, which culminates in the annual Gypsy of the Year Competition.

To date the post-show Equus auctions have auctioned Richard Griffiths' autographed "Space Pen," which he uses in the play ($1,000); Kate Mulgrew's rehearsal script autographed by the entire cast ($2,000); and T-shirts worn by Radcliffe ($800).

The 2008 Gypsy of the Year Competition, the two-day celebration of the New York theatre community's ability to raise money for a good cause, will be held Dec. 8 at 4:30 PM and Dec. 9 at 2 PM at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Visit www.BroadwayCares.org for more information.

Equus is playing a limited engagement at the Broadhurst Theatre through Feb. 8, 2009. Tickets, priced $61.50-$116.50, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. Fifty-two onstage seats are available for each performance.
