Highlights From Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America

Created in 1992 by Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell as a fund raising event for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the inaugural Broadway Bares featured seven dancers stripping on a bar and raised about $8,000. Twenty-plus years later, the event is a completely choreographed extravaganza of modern burlesque. On June 23, Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America hit an all-time record high (for the fourth year in a row!) adding $1,430,241 to BC/EFA’s coffers. The evening featured special appearances by 2013 Tony Award winners Judith Light, Billy Porter, Alan Cumming and musical performers The Skivvies. Read the Playbill story.
