Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. Last year, Broadway Bares raised $1,568,114. Together, all of the editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $17.4 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Every year features a host of special guests who join hundreds of other dancers, many of which are currently starring on Broadway.
