Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS 18th Annual Broadway Bares fundraiser, titled Wonderland, was unveiled June 22 at the Roseland Ballroom.
Created and executive-produced by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, this year's theme was "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."
Mary Birdsong (Fame Becomes Me, Hairspray) starred as Alice with Tituss Burgess as The White Rabbit. Among the stars who attended were Nathan Lane, Andrea Martin, Matthew Morrison, Jennifer Cody and more.
The evening, according to press notes, will boast "over 200 of Broadway's hottest bodies traveling 'through the looking glass' to bring some of 'Wonderland''s classic characters to life . . . Along the way, Alice [Birdsong] will encounter a White Rabbit [Burgess] that will make audiences blush, a Mad Tea Party featuring a sexy Mad Hatter and a tempting March Hare, and a Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum that only [Broadway Bares] could deliver."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
