The 24th annual Broadway Bares event benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will honor the best of rock 'n' roll with Broadway Bares: Rock Hard! The burlesque-inspired Broadway celebration will pay tribute to some of the genre's most iconic tunes and historic moments in two performances at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, June 22.
Created by Tony Award-winning choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), Broadway Bares features over 150 New York dancers who strip down to their skivvies alongside some of Broadway's most talented performers. This year's roster of special guests will be announced at a later date.
The inaugural event, held in 1992, featured just seven dancers. Since its inception, the annual benefit has raised over $11.3 million for Broadway/Cares Equity Fights AIDS.
This year's edition of Broadway Cares is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and led by Producing Director Michael Graziano. It will be directed by Nick Kenkel, who also helmed the 23rd edition of Broadway Bares.
