New Appearance: Hugh Jackman Attended "Gypsy Of The Year" Broadway Cares 2014!

"The Lion King dancers and Hugh Jackman’s juggernaut fundraising skills proved a potent combination once again at the 26th annual Gypsy of the Year Competition, which raised an all-time record-breaking $5.2 million for the charity Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The Lion King won Best Presentation for the third year in a row with “Is the Writing on the Wall?,” in which the show’s limber dancers circled a man in a top hat who sketched a dove of peace in chalk on a black wall.

Jackman’s auctioning of his sweaty shirts after each performance of his play The River — a strategy he perfected in 2011 on his show Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway — helped loft that show’s total to $549,725 so far beyond the next-highest earner (It’s Only a Play, with $464,559) that the judges took The River out of the competition and gave Jackman a Special Award for extraordinary effort, as they did in 2011."
