A total of 67 Broadway, Off-Broadway, and touring productions took part, raising a collective $6,113,301—the highest fall fundraising total in the organization’s 30-year history.

Each season, shows raise funds through collective donations via the namesake red buckets, incentives, and auctions. Named the top overall fundraiser was the “Angelica” leg of the Hamilton tour, which made $515,152. The hit musical was also the top fundraiser on Broadway, with the New York company raising $414,971

As part of the event, Broadway casts offer various performances, from skits and parodies to poignant dance pieces. This year, Kinky Boots was awarded Best Onstage Presentation, for its parody of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” as they prepare for the show's final bows in April.

BC/EFA has become one of the nation’s leading industry-based AIDS fundraising organizations, drawing upon the theatre industry and community to raise over $300 million since 1988. Funds go to men, women, and children around the country for treatments and medication, health care, counseling, emergency financial assistance, and more.
