At Broadway Bares, 150 dancers perform in various states of undress, from capes and spandex to thongs and pasties. Most other nights, they work it — with costumes on — in 42nd Street, Aida, Chicago, Beauty and the Beast, The Phantom of the Opera, Cabaret, The Lion King, The Producers, Contact, The Full Monty, Mamma Mia!, Sweet Smell of Success, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Urinetown and Rent. In 2002, Broadwy Bares raised $ 395,000 including a $50,000 gift from MAC Cosmetics.
