The Gypsy Robe

The Gypsy Robe has been a Broadway tradition for the past 40 years. The garment is considered magical and brings with it luck, tradition, and a sense of community. It is named for the ensemble performers, or "gypsies," who move from show to show. These singers and dancers are the unsung heroes of the stage. The robe is decorated with mementos from each person who has received it and is presented to a member of the ensemble who displays the greatest dedication and commitment.

It is traditional for the robe to be presented on opening night before curtain time. A member of the chorus is crowned the new king or queen of the gypsies.
