The 21st Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction was held earlier today, Sunday, September 23 in Shubert Alley & West 44th Street. In this event, theater fans were able to pose with Broadway stars for photos in exchange for donation, buy that lost cast recording, signed Broadway memorabilia such as show posters and Playbills, rare costume sketches or special gifts one can’t find anywhere. Participating artists included Vanessa and Lyn Redgrave, Bernadette Peters, Bebe Neuwirth, David Hyde Pierce, Sir Ian McKellen among others. Proceeds from the event go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Photos above were taken at the flea market at Shubert Alley and 44th Street.

The Broadway Flea Market, held each September in Shubert Alley, brings out the biggest and brightest stars from Broadway, Off-Broadway, Dance and daytime television to greet fans and sell memorabilia. Casts and company members of dozens of shows are joined by theatrical unions and guilds, producing organizations, local merchants, and many other groups to sell costume pieces, autographs, original scripts, rare photographs, and so much more. The event also includes the Celebrity Table, where celebrities gather throughout the day to sign autographs and pose for photos in exchange for donations. The highlight of the Flea Market is the Grand Auction, in which singular items and opportunities such as walk-on roles in Broadway shows, television programs and films are available to the highest bidder.
