Tickets for Broadway Bares 15: Rxxx Now On Sale

News   Tickets for Broadway Bares 15: Rxxx Now On Sale Tickets for Broadway’s sexiest night — Sunday, June 19 at the famed Roseland Ballroom — are now on sale.

Broadway Bares 15: Rxxx, subtitled "Take Two and Call Me in the Morning," will be presented at 9:30 PM and again at midnight at the club on West 52nd Street. The annual fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, according to production notes, will feature "naughty nurses, hot young orderlies, and enough flesh to make a plastic surgeon blush."

Broadway Bares will be produced by its creator, Jerry Mitchell, choreographer of Broadway's Hairspray and the current revival of La Cage aux Folles. Additional details will be announced shortly.

A little Bares history: Over a decade ago, 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 Will Rogers dancers raised $8,000 for the charitable organization. Last season's competition — executive produced by Mitchell and directed by Jodi Moccia — brought in a whopping $525,000. Frozen's Swoosie Kurtz and 42nd Street's Shirley Jones and Patrick Cassidy were the evening's hosts.

Tickets to the Bares fundraiser are priced $50 (general admission), $95 (priority viewing), $225 (VIP standing plus open bar) and $600 (VIP seating plus open bar). Call (212) 840-0770, ext. 268 or visit www.broadwaycares.org. The Roseland Ballroom is located in New York City at 239 West 52nd Street.

* Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the nation’s largest industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization. Since its founding in 1988 the organization has distributed over $100 million for services for people with AIDS, HIV or HIV-related illnesses.
