CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Playbill reports:

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ fall fundraiser has begun its six-week drive, leading up to the annual Red Bucket Follies presentation, with performances taking place at 4:30 PM on December 9 and 2 PM on December 10.

Throughout the fundraising period, cast members will collect money after show performances in the signature red buckets at Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring productions across the country. Productions will also offer signed posters, autographed Playbills and other items and experiences in exchange for a donation to Broadway Cares.

The donations support vulnerable populations in need of medication, meals, financial assistance, and more. Red Bucket Follies will feature Broadway casts offering a variety of performances, from skits and parodies to poignant dance pieces. Prizes are awarded to the companies that raise the most money during the drive.
