The 27th annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Easter Bonnet Competition raised an all-time record of $4,250,542 in six weeks of nightly curtain-call appeals. The number was revealed at the April 23 performance of skits, songs, dances and giant hats that make up the unique fundraiser-show, at the Minskoff Theatre.
This year's top fundraising award went to the Tom Hanks starrer Lucky Guy, which raised $301,549, an unusual win for a non-musical play.
The total leaped ahead of the $3,734,000 previous record set in pre-recession 2007. This year's total was raised by 47 participating Broadway, Off-Broadway and touring shows.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
