With a new theme of "Comedy and Tragedy" and produced by Josef Reiter, the free event is made possible by the support of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Company members from Broadway's Beauty and the Beast will join more than 40 exhibitors at the fair.

"The exhibiting artisans are a diverse group of theatre professionals made up of actors, singers, dancers, musicians, stage managers, and wardrobe personnel. Not only do they act, sing, dance, play instruments, direct and choreograph, but in their spare time, they paint, photograph sculpt, make clothing, purses and jewelry, and the list goes on and on," state press notes.
