More than two dozen dancers will take the stage at 7 pm and 9 pm at Whyte Hall's Brandon Fradd Theatre in Fire Island Pines, NY, for a collection of classic and new BROADWAY BARES numbers. The show will be followed by Bares' famous "rotation" where the dancers freestyle dance for donations. BROADWAY BARES: BEACH BURLESQUE will feature the Bares performers in a theatre setting with all patrons seated.
Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell is executive producer and creator of Broadway Bares. Michael Lee Scott directs BROADWAY BARES: BEACH BURLESQUE.
