The 2016 edition of Broadway Bares raised $1,482,724 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The show, titled On Demand, took place Sunday, June 19 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. It featured more than 200 of the hottest and most talented dancers in New York City who shared the stage for two shows at 9:30pm and midnight. For the fourth year in a row, the show was directed by Nick Kenkel (Catch Me If You Can, Peepshow, Legally Blonde).

Broadway Bares: On Demand laid bare every iconic genre of television, from classic "As Seen on TV" exercise infomercials to a sexy sweet treat of a cooking show, from late-night horror flicks to strong and do-it-yourself shows.

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. The 25 editions of Broadway Bares has since raised more than $14.3 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
