Independent Theatre Cares Initiative

    The League of Independent Theatre is pleased to announce the Independent Theatre Cares Initiative. Indie/OOB companies all over the city will spend the first two weeks of June using audience appeals and other methods to raise funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

    Founded in 1992, Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS is the nation's leading industry based HIV/AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization. They fund the social service work of The Actors Fund and award grants twice a year to AIDS service organizations nationwide. Through audience appeals and annual events like the Easter Bonnet, Gypsy of the Year and Broadway Bares, BC/EFA raises millions of dollars each year to help those in our industry suffering from H.I.V./AIDS.

    Over the first two weeks of June, many prominent Indie/OOB theatre companies will be using audience appeals to raise funds for BC/EFA. It’s our way to say to the community that no matter your Equity tier or ticket price, we’re all in this together and good can be done on any level. Catch some great Independent Theatre this month and be as generous as you can; help us show that not only do Broadway and off-Broadway care, but Indie Theatre cares as well.
