Equity’s GYPSY ROBE®
A Historic 65-Year Backstage Tradition on Broadway
Gypsy Robe Recipient Jeremy Davis Helps Heat Up Frozen
“I love the Gypsy Robe because itís everything that I love about theatre. Itís fun, celebratory, unifying and just the right amount of silly. On a practical level, it gives a veteran member of the cast an excuse to go from dressing room to dressing room and tell the entire cast to break a leg. For me personally, it was a beautiful experience to look each of my cast members in the eyes and say 'Congrats, we did it!'”
