Kevin Kline knows how to entertain an audience. He also knows how to generate enthusiasm for a good cause. Following recent performances of “Cyrano de Bergerac” in New York, Kline offered audiences the chance to buy the fake noses he wears as Cyrano to raise money for AIDS-related charity Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The fundraiser was well received by audiences. A spokeswoman for the production said that a television producer paid $1,300 for the first autographed prosthetic nose while another theater-goer paid $1,500 the following night. The noses were signed by Kline and co-star Jennifer Garner.

“The idea that Kevin Kline is literally auctioning the nose off his face is hilarious, and hilarious for a great cause,” said Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway Cares is an industry-based organization that relies on the talents and generosity of the American Theatre community to raise money for AIDS-related causes in the United States.
