Broadway Bares XXI: Masterpiece will be presented at 9:30 PM and midnight. The Roseland Ballroom is located in New York City at 239 West 52nd Street.
This year's fundraiser will "offer up a modern-day burlesque show packed with museum-quality human canvases that would make an art critic blush," according to press notes. Broadway Bares was created by Jerry Mitchell, the Tony-winning choreographer who is currently represented on Broadway with Catch Me If You Can. The 20th annual Broadway Bares, which was held June 20, 2010, raised a record-breaking $1,015,985 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.
Broadway Cares XXI: Masterpiece will be produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, executive produced by Tony winner Mitchell and directed by Josh Rhodes.
