06 Jul 2013
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.
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.
