Broadway Bares will be presented June 21, 2015, at the Hammerstein Ballroom at 9:30 PM and midnight. More than 200 of the hottest male and female dancers in New York City will take to the stage; this year's theme and special guests will be announced in the spring.

"What started as me and six Broadway friends wanting to do more for Broadway Cares has turned into an annual night-to-remember that you simply can't miss," Mitchell said in a statement. "I created a show from my heart and audiences have continued to embrace it. Now every year, we get to take off our clothes, raise a heck of a lot of money and truly make a difference in the lives of men, women and children across the country."

The first edition of Broadway Bares raised $8,000. Last year's Broadway Bares: Rock Hard! raised $1,386,105, bringing the all-time Bares total to $12.6 million.

Hammerstein Ballroom is located in Manhattan Center at 311 West 34th Street.
