The annual competition comes after six weeks of intensive fundraising by various shows on and off Broadway as well as touring productions throughout the country. It's a chance to celebrate the Broadway gypsies while raising funds for the worthy organization.
Awards are presented in two categories: for best skit and for most money raised for BC/EFA.
Last year, Gypsy of the Year raised a record-breaking $4,895,253, pushing the competition's 23-year total to $49,031,973.
Tickets for this year's event will be available beginning Oct. 19 by calling (212) 840-0770. For further information visit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on the web at http://www.bcefa.org.
The New Amsterdam Theatre is located at Broadway and 42nd Street.
