John Stamos (Cabaret's current Emcee) and The Producers' Steven Weber will be among 150 Broadway stars and starlets shaking their collective moneymakers on Sunday, June 16 at the Roseland Ballroom in a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway Bares XII: A Comic Strip is the latest installment in the series of shows conceived by choreographer Jerry Mitchell. The night of burlesque will feature performers from just about every Broadway tuner you can name, from Mamma Mia! to Beauty and the Beast to, naturally, The Full Monty.
Two shows are set for 9:30pm and 12:00 midnight. Ticket prices range as high as $500 for the earlier performance but admission to the midnight revelry is $35 across the board. Broadway Bares is billed as "more than just a strip show"; rounding out the bill are teams of aerialists from two groups, Anti-Gravity and the Living Art of Armando, whose efforts will surely be much appreciated...so long as they don't block anyone's view of the stage.
