Broadway Bares began in 1992 when Jerry Mitchell, then a performer in The Will Rogers Follies, organized a benefit burlesque show featuring himself and six friends performing original strips at a bar for a $10 donation plus whatever tips the audience gave the dancers. Mitchell, now a Tony Award-winning director and choreographer, is executive producer of Broadway Bares, which is produced by and benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway Bares: Solo Strips is a sexy tease for Broadway Bares, one of BC/EFA's annual signature events. Broadway Bares: Rock Hard! will feature 150 of New York's most desirable dancers. The show will be directed by Nick Kenkel (Catch Me If You Can, Peepshow, Legally Blonde), who also directed Broadway Bares 23.
