Daniel Radcliffe and many of his costars from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, including John Larroquette, Rose Hemingway, and Christopher J Hanke, attended the annual Gypsy Robe Ceremony. Photos can be seen in the gallery.




What's the Gypsy Robe Ceremony? It brings with it luck, tradition, and a sense of community. In 1959, Bill Bradley, a dancer in the musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, borrowed a tacky dressing robe from a chorus girl or “gypsy” — as the singers and/or dancers in Broadway choruses call themselves. On opening night, he paraded through backstage bestowing blessings on the production. The musical was a major hit. A few nights later, Bradley sent the robe to his friend, another chorus gypsy.
