Broadway Bares Announces Theme for 2018 Event
Game Night will take place on June 17.
The annual Broadway Bares benefit from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, June 17, has announced its theme: Game Night.
Broadway Bares: Game Night features seductive production numbers from more than 150 of the most talented dancers on Broadway. They will strut and strip their way into your heart in two unforgettable shows at 9:30pm and midnight. Broadway Bares will be directed by Nick Kenkel and Laya Barak. Aaron Hamilton serves as associate director.
The show was created in 1992 by Jerry Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. In Broadway Bares's first year, Mitchell and six of his friends danced in a New York City bar and raised $8,000. The 2017 edition raised $1,568,114 for the organization, bringing the 27-year grand total to more than $17.4 million.
