Let’s celebrate Broadway choruses and ensembles!

Cast members making their Broadway dedut during the Actors' Equity Gypsy Robe Ceremony honoring Rod Harrelson for 'Motown The Musical'  at the  Nederlander Theatre on July 14, 2016 in New York City.
Cast on opening night - 'Fiddler on the Roof'

Broadway companies on opening night. Top: Motown The Musical. Above: Fiddler on the Roof company reaching out to touch Jeffrey Schechter’s robe for good luck.

It takes a whole cast to make a great show.


The chorus isn’t optional: Broadway performers know that the success of a show depends on the whole cast. The whole cast should be eligible for Tonys!
