Walk-on appearances in Broadway’s biggest hits, on-set visits to television’s most popular shows, lunch with Angela Lansbury, and the shirts off Hugh Jackman’s and Ricky Martin’s backs – literally – are among the priceless lots now available for pre-bidding as Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS presents the 26th Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction.
Plan now to spend Sunday, September 23, 2012 with Broadway Cares and thousands of other theatre fans in Times Square, Shubert Alley, and along West 44th Street searching for one-of-a-kind theatre keepsakes. Held from 10 AM – 7 PM, this not-to-be-missed event for every Broadway theatergoer is free and open to the public and has been called one of the “Best Once-A-Year Markets” in New York City.
