A bid for meeting Ricky Martin at Evita on Broadway closed on October 25. The auction was held at Charitybuzz and the proceeds for this item will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Details about the VIP night:

Here’s a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime chance to see EVITA, Broadway’s “high-octane blockbuster musical hit,” meet its internationally renowned superstar, Ricky Martin, and take home a specially signed souvenir of your high-flying night in the streets outside La Casa Rosada.

  • You and a guest will see what critics have called a “sumptuous, elegant and breathtakingly romantic” musical from VIP house seats
  • Immediately after the show, go backstage and meet Ricky Martin, whose sexy and sublime performance as Che has critics calling him “the King of Broadway” and audiences nightly cheering
  • Take home a Henley shirt worn by Mr. Martin in the show, signed by him on the back, as well as a show poster signed by the entire cast of EVITA

From an unconfirmed source on Twitter, the bid ended up with more than $7,000.
