Broadway charity auction offers Tom Hanks T-shirt

NEW YORK (AP) — A T-shirt worn onstage by Tom Hanks in "Lucky Guy" and Elphaba's broom prop used by Idina Menzel in "Wicked" are among the top items that will be auctioned off Sept. 22 at the annual Broadway Flea Market and Grand Auction.

Bidders will be able to snap up signed memorabilia from more than a dozen Broadway shows, meet-and-greet opportunities with stars and even win walk-on roles at "Chicago," ''Cinderella," ''Kinky Boots," ''The Lion King," ''Mamma Mia!," ''Once," ''The Phantom of the Opera" and "Rock of Ages." Other prizes include lunch with Angela Lansbury and Judith Light.

All proceeds go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Free and open to the public, the outdoor event takes place all day along West 44th Street and in Shubert Alley.
