Broadway Bares 19 Sets June Date

News   Broadway Bares 19 Sets June Date Broadway's sexiest night of the year is set for June 21 at the famed Roseland Ballroom.

Two Broadway Bares shows will be presented that Sunday: at 9:30 PM and midnight. The Roseland Ballroom is located in New York City at 239 West 52nd Street.

Broadway Bares was created by Jerry Mitchell, the Tony-winning choreographer most recently represented on Broadway with the new musical Legally Blonde. The 18th annual Broadway Bares, which was held June 22, 2008, was another record breaker, raising $874,372 for BC/EFA. Last year's fundraiser was directed by Denis Jones.

To date, Broadway Bares has raised over $5.6 million for BC/EFA.

A little Bares history: Nearly 20 years ago, Legally Blonde's Mitchell, who once danced nearly naked on a drum in The Will Rogers Follies, found himself inspired to take it all off to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and Broadway Bares was born. The first year, he and seven other Broadway dancers raised $8,000 for the charitable organization.

Tickets to the Bares fundraiser are on sale by calling (212) 840-0770, ext. 268 or by visiting www.BroadwayCares.org. *

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the nation's largest industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization. Since its founding in 1988 the organization has distributed over $150 million for services for people with AIDS, HIV or HIV-related illnesses.
