Tony Award winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots, TV’s Pose) and Alex Newell (Once On This Island) will be part of Broadway Bares: Take Off, which will be presented June 16 at 9:30 PM and midnight at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The two actors join previously announced special guests Stephen DeRosa (Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus), Jay Armstrong Johnson (The Phantom of the Opera), Nathan Lee Graham (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; Zoolander), Tony nominee Ashley Park (Mean Girls), two-time Tony nominee Christopher Sieber (The Prom), and Christian Dante White (My Fair Lady).

They’ll perform alongside more than 150 dancers, including cast members from the Broadway productions of Aladdin, Be More Chill, Beetlejuice, The Cher Show, Come From Away, Frozen, Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, Hadestown, Hamilton, King Kong, The Lion King, My Fair Lady, The Phantom of the Opera, Pretty Woman, The Prom, and Wicked.

Broadway Bares: Take Off promises titillating, travel-inspired striptease from a risqué red light district to a tantalizing taming of the bull and from a mega-hot Burning Man to a celebratory return to Stonewall.

Broadway Bares: Take Off is directed by Laya Barak; Jonathan Lee is the assistant director.

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Jerry Mitchell. The 28 editions of Broadway Bares have raised $19.1 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
