2018 Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction Raises Over $900,000 by Ryan McPhee
The grand total for the 32nd annual event was the second-highest in Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS history.
PF: Bernhardt / Hamlet @ American Airlines Theatre, 227 West 42nd Street, through November 11, 2018

PF: Girl From The North Country @ The Public, Newman Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, through December 23, 2018
Written and directed by Conor McPherson, with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan.
Following a sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a West End transfer, the astonishing new show from Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson and music icon Bob Dylan makes its North American premiere at The Public with an American cast this fall. Dylan’s inimitable songbook is authentically transformed by McPherson into an achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota in 1934.
The complete American cast features Todd Almond (Elias Burke), Jeannette Bayardelle (Mrs. Neilson), Stephen Bogardus (Nick Laine), Sydney James Harcourt (Joe Scott), Matthew Frederick Harris (Ensemble), Caitlin Houlahan (Kate Draper), Robert Joy (Dr. Walker), Marc Kudisch (Mr. Burke), Luba Mason (Mrs. Burke), Tom Nelis (Mr. Perry), David Pittu (Reverend Marlowe), Colton Ryan (Gene Laine), John Schiappa (Ensemble), Kimber Sprawl (Marianne Laine), Rachel Stern (Ensemble), Chelsea Lee Williams (Ensemble), and Mare Winningham (Elizabeth Laine).
