Ramin Karimloo, Aaron Tveit, Anthony Rapp, and other Broadway stars take part in Broadway's official poker tournament, Broadway Bets, which returns May 22 in a benefit event for Broadway Cares. Also in the lineup: Kelli Barrett, Robert Creighton, Christopher Innvar, Brian Koppleman, and Jarrod Spector.
Held at Sardi's Restaurant, Broadway stars, industry members, and theatre fans gather for the first Texas Hold 'Em tournament in four years. Both first-timers and seasoned players have the chance to go all in to win the title of the 2023 Broadway Bets champion. For anyone who reaches the final table, prizes will be awarded.
Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served at 6 PM, with the game beginning at 7 PM. Broadway Bets provides an open bar through the entire event. For those who want to observe the game without partaking in it, guest passes are available, which include access to other casino games and opportunities to win prizes.
Directing the tournament: Foresight Theatrical partner Mark Shacket, The Road Company co-founder Brett Sirota, and Foresight Theatrical associate general manager Alex Wolfe.
Broadway Bets is founded and co-chaired by Jujamcyn Theaters Executive Vice President Emeritus Paul Libin and Shubert Organization President Robert E. Wankel. Libin is also president emeritus of the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Board of Trustees, and Wankel serves as the current president.
