Earlier this week, the Theater community ended it’s Holiday fund raising for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS with the annual GYPSY OF THE YEAR competition (at the New Amsterdam Theatre) which all the Broadway and Touring shows participate doing skits, spoofs, original pieces, and more.

For the finale, the Broadway and Touring companies of the Award wining smash hit Jersey Boys united with their final GYPSY OF THE YEAR performance before it’s 4,642nd and final Broadway performance on January 15th, 2017 at the August Wilson Theatre. The West End production is also set to close March 2017. This TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE smash hit will be missed.

#GypsyOfTheYear 2016 concluded with a celebratory send off to long-running Broadway hit Jersey Boys, which closes January 15 after 11 record-breaking years.

Current star Mark Ballas said, ?Our motto at Jersey Boys is a line from the show, ?family is everything? It’s been an honor to join this family, the Jersey family.?

The performance, written, directed and staged by continuing original cast member Peter Gregus, featured more than 60 past and present cast members, including Mark Ballas, Drew Gehling, Andy Karl, Dominic Nolfi, Drew Seeley, Jarrod Spector and Andrew Rannells. This year?s top fundraising award brings the Broadway company?s all-time fundraising total for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS to a remarkable $2,719,887.
