Broadway Cares, an AIDS support and resource organization sponsored by the New York theater community, has been created by more than 30 stage groups and unions, it was announced this week. The organization will provide grants to established service organizations that are caring for people with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. A spokesman said the group will raise money by tapping its most valuable fund-raising resource, Broadway audiences--estimated at more than 8.2 million people each year. Besides Actors Equity, members of Broadway Cares include Broadway's three largest theater owners--the Shubert, Nederlander and Jujamcyn organizations--and various unions that include musicians, stage hands, box-office personnel, stage managers, directors, choreographers and scenic designers.
