That’s what they call a triple winner and that is what “33 Variations” did today at the big Broadway Cares finale held at the huge Minskoff Theatre. We won for best bonnet (thanks to David Masenheimer who designed it), best skit (thanks to Michael Winther who wrote and directed it) and for–drum roll please–raising the most money of any other show on Broadway–drama or musical!!! We raised $183,547. We beat “Wicked” and all those Disney extravaganzas!! It is the first time in Broadway Cares history that a show wins all 3 awards. Thanks to those blogger friends who sent in money and to all the donors who came to the show and responded to our “ask.”
And what fun it was. OMG. Standing O when I dropped the gorgeous full length mink, loaned to me by the great furrier, Sorbara, and began to lead the cast in a Jane Fonda Workout.

The Award Win for Best Fundraising
Managed to get a nap before tonight’s show and it was a good show. I even found new things.
Headed home now and, hopefully, I won’t have trouble going to sleep. I’ll fet in on the second half of the Rachel Maddow Show and slowly, somewhere during Chris Matthews (and not because he isn’t wonderful, which he is) I will fade off.
See you next time.
