PHOTO CALL: The 2014 Easter Bonnet Competition in Performance
23 Apr 2014
The 28th annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Easter Bonnet Competition raised an all-time record $4,532,129 in six weeks of nightly curtain-call appeals. That total eclipsed the $4.25 million previous record set one year ago. The number was revealed at the April 22 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 national tour of The Book of Mormon (Latter Day Company), which raised a stunning $405,009, nearly one tenth of this year’s total for 57 participating Broadway, Off-Broadway and touring shows.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
