AEA’s GYPSY ROBE®
A Historic 65-Year Backstage Tradition on Broadway
I’m Gonna Dance! and Dance He Did: Darren Lee marks his 11th Broadway Chorus musical with Allegiance and a Gypsy Robe honor
“I’m thrilled to be included among the gypsies in Equity’s Broadway history to receive this honor. I think it’s a secret wish for every chorus performer to one day receive the robe.”
