A priceless collection of Tony winners and nominees will be making this year's Broadway Bares XXI: Masterpiece a truly "starry night" as they join more than 200 of Broadway's sexiest dancers in an auction-themed burlesque show that would make any art critic blush.
This year's Bares will feature Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (Baby It's You) singing an original opening number, "Going, Going, Gone," written by Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar. Tony nominee Patina Miller (Sister Act) will perform the finale, "The Final Masterpiece." Other special guests include Tony nominee and Emmy Award winner Judith Light (Lombardi), Tony nominee Rory O'Malley (The Book of Mormon), Emmy winner Jim Parsons (The Normal Heart), Tony and Emmy winner David Hyde Pierce (La Béte), Tony winner Roger Rees (The Addams Family), Tony nominee Christopher Sieber (La Cage aux Folles) and the always provocative New York Post columnist Michael Riedel.
Broadway Bares, the hotly anticipated annual event combining the naughtiness of burlesque and the razzle-dazzle of Broadway, has been a smashing success since its inception in 1992. The event has become one of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS' signature events. The first Broadway Bares featured seven dancers performing choreographed stripteases on a bar and raised more than $8,000. In all 20 editions, Broadway Bares has collectively raised more than $7.5 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
