Broadway Bares XXII: Happy Endings will be presented June 17 at Roseland Ballroom, 239 West 52nd Street, at 9:30 PM and midnight to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The evening will feature a special appearance by 2012 Tony winner Judith Light.

Kyle Dean Massey (Next to Normal) will appear throughout the show as the lead character looking for his fairytale happy ending. Miriam Shor (TV's “GCB”) will sing an original opening number, “Happy Endings,” written by Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar. And, Rachel Potter (Evita) will perform the finale, “Happily Ever After.”

Tony nominee Christopher Sieber and Bares veteran Rachelle Rak will lead the show's "rotation," where the evening's dancers bump and grind to earn more money for the charity.



Other special guests include Academy Award nominee Jennifer Tilly (Don't Dress for Dinner) and legendary New York drag queen Lady Bunny.

Lee Wilkins (Elf, Spamalot) direct this year's edition of Broadway Bares, "where New York's sexiest and most delectable dancers will take you to a land where rubbing a magic lamp reveals more than just a genie," according to press notes.

The annual fundraiser was created by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, who also serves as executive producer, and is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, led by producing director Michael Graziano.

Tickets to both performances are sold out. A limited number of tickets may be available between 3 PM and 7 PM only on June 17 in the lobby of Roseland Ballroom. Ticket availability will be based on cancellations and returns. Tickets will be first-come, first-served. Cash or credit cards will be accepted. Visit Broadwaycares.org.
