With the blog nearly seven years old and while flicking through the archives, I stumbled upon some posts from the early days of the site that I’d forgotten about. So in this short series of blasts from the past, here are some fun favourites that deserve another airing.

First up it’s Broadway Bears.

For 15 years The Broadway Bears, the annual auction of handmade, one-of-a-kind, theatrically costumed teddy bears raised money for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS appeal. 2012 saw the final auction and was among the most spectacular, bringing the total collected for the charity to more than 2 million dollars.

Can you name all of the musicals involved? Answers at the end of each gallery.

Cats, Grease, Jersey Boys, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Follies, The Book of Mormon, The Lion King, The Producers and War Horse.

Avenue Q, Beauty and the Beast, Billy Elliot, Evita, Jerusalem, Mamma Mia, Shrek, Sister Act and Wicked.
