60 years of the gypsy robe --> Last month David was one of the lucky few invited to the incredible evening put together by Actor's Equity to pay homage of this time-honored tradition. David was joined by scores of fellow recipients including the likes of Patti Karr of Richard Chamberlain revival of MY FAIR LADY, Joyce Nolen of SMILE, Judine Somerville of HAIRSPRAY and Carmen Ruby of AVENUE Q.

Various robes were paraded throughout the evening which was held at the gorgeous SEQUOIA down at South Street Seaport offering some truly breathtaking views of the southern tip of Manhattan. Cocktails and sumptuous hors d'oeuvres were savored. Vivid stories were recounted. New friends and old came together to share their memories of receiving the robe for their respective Broadway shows just as David did for his participation in the original Broadway cast of BY JEEVES.
