"There is an unspoken energy in the air that everyone wants to help to find a cure and help those in need."
Wicked ensemblist Daniel Quadrino shares his thoughts on fundraising for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS:
"I think it's important to collect this season, as well as every season, because we are making the change that we want to see in the world.
"We as a community collect and fundraise as a way to honor those who we have lost to these diseases. Personally, I love to collect because it's a way for me to connect with people on a personal level, and there is an unspoken energy in the air that everyone wants to help to find a cure and help those in need. We are privileged to be able to do this job and perform on Broadway, so it is a way for us as a community to give back as a whole. Especially in the recent political climate we are our own activists, and we together are making the change that we want to see... It's the least we can do."
