Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has just released new footage from Broadway Bares: Game Night, featuring Spencer Clark of Frozen. The annual fundraiser was presented June 17 at the Hammerstein Ballroom and raised $1,875,090 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
In the video above, Clark conjures up “something mythically gorgeous in the form of aerialist Reed Kelly, who spun and flew above the stage in supernatural swirls of silk. The poetic pair passionately performed the ballet-infused romantic choreography by Kellen Stancil, supported by an all-male chorus of alluring spirits.”
The aerial work was directed by Mathieu Leopold.
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. To date, Broadway Bares has now raised $19.1 million for Broadway Cares.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.
