The 29th Annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Easter Bonnet Competition raised a new all-time record $4,711,386 in six weeks of nightly curtain-call appeals. Of course, the JERSEY BOYS company gave it their all, raising $142,765 for BC/EFA and taking top design honors for its shimmering crystal-and LED-covered bonnet, created by Ricky Yates. The JB company received runner-up presentation honors in their skit featuring current and alumni cast members who showed what happened when the legendary show went global. The company delivered amusing international versions of the show’s hits as performed by a mariachi band, a German oompah band, a reggae quartet and full-scale Bollywood production.
