REMINDER: The 31st Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction is this Sunday. For those who have never witnessed it and are in NYC this weekend, this is literally early Christmas shopping, BROADWAY STYLE!!!
Every year, the Broadway community puts together this Flea Market to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (a non-for-profit organization to help men, women, and children dealing with serious conditions including HIV/AIDS). Everything you can imagine from Broadway is being sold for a great cause including past and present playbills, posters, CD’s, T-Shirts, autographed material, and even old set pieces, costumes, and props from some of the past and current shows running on Broadway. In addition, several highlights is the famous CELEBRITY TABLE at Juniors (featuring of your favorite Broadway performers) and the live auction (where you can bid on some really cool Broadway stuff including tickets to Opening Night performances of new shows, meet & greet backstage opportunities, and the best of all winning a walk-on-role in one of Broadway’s current smash hit shows). This is all for an amazing cause!!
Amada and Michael will both be there.
