Audemars Piguet has teamed up with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS to create a unique auction off Audemars Piguet wall clocks. The eight one-of-a-kind aluminum wall clocks were displayed along the red carpet and were decorated by the nominees for Best Musical and Best Musical Revival (Evita, Follies, Jesus Christ Superstar, Leap of Faith, Newsies, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Once, and The Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess) to represent each one of this season’s musicals. A ninth clock was signed by nominated actors attending last month’s Meet the Nominees reception.
