Solo Strips is a return to the origins of Broadway Bares when, in 1992, creator Jerry Mitchell—then a performer in Will Rogers Follies—organized a benefit burlesque show featuring himself and six friends performing original strips at a bar for a $10 donation plus whatever tips the audience gave the dancers.
As previously announced, Broadway Bares XXII: Happy Endings will be presented June 17 at 9:30 PM and midnight at the famed Roseland Ballroom.
