Legally Blonde Tony nominee Jerry Mitchell is the executive producer of Bares, which was directed by Denis Jones. Altar Boyz' Gary Adler penned the opening number for the show; Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' Jeffrey Lane wrote the script. Broadway Bares XVII: Myth Behavior is described as such: "All of Mount Olympus will tremble at this year's edition of Broadway Bares which will feature a pantheon of gods and goddesses (and a few mere mortals for them to toy with). Broadway Bares will celebrate Greek mythology with the Broadway Bares twist that makes the event one of the hottest of the summer. From the chiseled physiques of Narcissus and Poseidon to the deadly alluring Medusa to the debauched Bacchus and the legendary Amazons, a veritable clash of the titans will take place on stage at the Roseland Ballroom as hundreds of Broadway's hottest bodies bare it all for BC/EFA."
