Broadway Buzz: A Chance to Give Back!

The 2011/12 Kimberly-Clark Broadway Across America – Fox Cities Series officially gets underway with Les Misérables November 15-20, and the cast and crew have something special in store for their Fox Cities run. They’re going to be collecting donations for a charity that’s near and dear to the Broadway community, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

 Back in the late ’80s as HIV/AIDS was first making headlines, actors and producers in New York came together to build awareness of the disease, support The Actor’s Fund, and raise funds for AIDS service organizations nationwide. With campaigns like the Broadway Flee Market, an Easter Bonnet Contest and Broadway Bares (cover your eyes, kids) the group has tapped their creative talents to raise and award more than $123 million! 

When the lights come up at Les Misérables, that’s your cue! If every Broadway ticket holder in New York and across the country contributes just $1 dollar this year, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS could raise more than $25 million. Your spare change can make a real difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
