Daniel Radcliffe and cast "How to Succeed" at Gypsy Robe Ceremony

Daniel Radcliffe attended the Gypsy Robe Ceremony before the official opening last Sunday, together with more cast of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and thanks to broadwayworld.com for the photos.
What's the Gypsy Robe Ceremony? It brings with it luck, tradition, and a sense of community. In 1959, Bill Bradley, a dancer in the musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, borrowed a tacky dressing robe from a chorus girl or “gypsy” — as the singers and/or dancers in Broadway choruses call themselves. On opening night, he paraded through backstage bestowing blessings on the production. The musical was a major hit. A few nights later, Bradley sent the robe to his friend, another chorus gypsy.
