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 $3,776,720, pushing the competition's 22-year total to $44,136,720.
Tickets for this year's event will be available beginning Oct. 13 by calling (212) 840-0770. For further information visit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on the web at http://www.bcefa.org.
