The hotly anticipated BROADWAY BARES will pay tribute to our favorite childhood fairy tales as only the modern-day burlesque show could when this year's edition of the immensely popular event becomes BROADWAY BARES XXII: HAPPY ENDINGS.
Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, BROADWAY BARES XXII: HAPPY ENDINGS will spin its tales on Sunday, June 17, for two performances only - at 9:30 PM & Midnight - at Roseland Ballroom (239 West 52nd Street, NYC).
In this 22nd edition of BROADWAY BARES, more than 200 of New York's sexiest and most delectable dancers will take you to a land where rubbing a magic lamp reveals more than just a genie. These storybook happy endings would make seven dwarfs whistle before and after they work. Special guests, who will be sure to awaken even the sleepiest beauty, will be announced at a later date.
BROADWAY BARES was created by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, who also serves as executive producer, and is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, led by Producing Director Michael Graziano. This year's edition is directed by Lee Wilkins (Elf, Spamalot).
BROADWAY BARES combines the naughtiness of burlesque with the razzle-dazzle of Broadway and has been a smashing success since its inception in 1992. The event, featuring the hottest male and female dancers on Broadway, has become one of BC/EFA's signature events. The first Broadway Bares featured just seven dancers performing choreographed stripteases on a bar and raised more than $8,000. Through 21 editions, BROADWAY BARES has raised more than $8.6 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
