Gypsy Robe Tradition Celebrates Lives in the Theatre

The passing of the Gypsy Robe is a Broadway tradition dating back to the 1950s which celebrates the dedication of long-time but often under-appreciated performers — for each new musical, the ensemble member with the most Broadway credits is awarded the Robe in an opening night ceremony. Here, Playbill gets an exclusive tour of Actors' Equity with staff member David Westphal who displays some of the most interesting, elaborate and inventive Gypsy Robes in their extensive collection. Read more about the history of the Gypsy Robe.
