The Very Best of Broadway Bares 2011–2014
Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, performances will be offered that evening at 9:30 PM and midnight.
The annual fundraiser will pay tribute to "rock ‘n’ roll’s iconic music and moments of the past 60 years. More than 150 of New York’s sexiest and most talented dancers will shake, rattle, and disrobe in an unforgettable burlesque spectacular," according to press notes.
Special guests for the evening will be announced at a later time. Broadway Bares, according to BC/EFA, "combines the naughtiness of burlesque with the razzle-dazzle of Broadway and has been a smashing success since its inception in 1992." The first Broadway Bares featured seven dancers performing choreographed stripteases on a bar and raised more than $8,000. Through 23 editions, Broadway Bares has raised more than $11.3 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
The fundraiser was created by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, who also serves as executive producer. It is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, led by producing director Michael Graziano. This year’s edition will be directed by Nick Kenkel.
