Broadway Bares, the unrivaled evening of sexy striptease that benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will return for its 23rd edition on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at Roseland Ballroom (239 West 52nd Street, NYC). Tickets go on sale today, November 27.
This always sold-out annual event combines the naughtiness of burlesque and the razzle-dazzle of Broadway. More than 200 of the hottest male and female dancers in New York City take to the stage for two sensational shows at 9:30 PM and midnight. This year's director, theme, and special guests will be announced in the spring.
The 2013 Broadway Bares season will officially kick off Sunday, January 27, when Broadway Bares: Winter Burlesque heats up XL Nightclub (512 West 42nd Street, NYC). Sure to cure anyone's winter blues, Broadway Bares: Winter Burlesque will recreate last summer's Fire Island Pines sensation, Broadway Bares: Beach Burlesque. More than 25 of Broadway Bares' sexiest dancers will offer a sizzling collection of choreographed stripteases. The show will be followed by Bares' famous "rotation" where the performers freestyle dance for donations.
The 2013 Bares season will continue with Broadway Bares: Solo Strips in May and Broadway Bares: Fire Island in early June before concluding with Broadway Bares 23 on June 23.
