The Gypsy Robe

Yesterday, Jordyn was lucky enough to join the Actors’ Equity Association for the Gypsy Robe ceremony at Carousel on Broadway. 

The Gypsy Robe is a 60 plus-year-old tradition in which the chorus member who has worked the most Broadway choruses receives a robe on opening night. Each new recipient puts on the Robe and circles the stage 3 times, while cast members reach out and touch the Robe for good luck. The Robe, worn by the new recipient, then visits each dressing room in the theatre.
