Broadway Bares: Winter Burlesque, the steamy theatrical striptease show that benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, held two performances, one at 9 and another at 11 PM, on Jan. 27 in Manhattan.
The 2013 Broadway Bares season (leading to its major June event Broadway Bares 23) kicked off Jan. 27 with Winter Burlesque at XL Nightclub at 512 W. 42nd Street. It "will recreate last summer's Fire Island Pines sensation, Broadway Bares: Beach Burlesque" and feature "more than 25 of Broadway Bares' sexiest dancers in a sizzling collection of choreographed stripteases."
The show was followed by Bares' famous "rotation," where the performers freestyle dance for donations. The rotation was by Broadway Bares favorite Jen Cody.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
