Over the past few days, those of you who popped into Schmackary’s (45th btw 8th+9th) for an afternoon cookie or coffee may have noticed a familiar face behind the counter or possibly even a short song and dance. Literally. Because all this week Broadway stars and yes, even some Tony nominees/winners have been slinging sweets for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Half of the sales and all of the tips this week will be donated to the charity, which “awards annual grants to more than 450 Aids and family service organizations nationwide and is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund including the HIV/AIDS initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic.” We’ve got the rundown of who’s serving today, tomorrow and Saturday afternoon (seriously, today’s 3-5pm lady is one of biggest names around!)
The first three days have been filled with Tony winners including three 2014 nominees yesterday alone (sorry, Brian J. Smith, Lena Hall and Audra McDonald fans!), but here’s the schedule so you don’t miss any more.
