Photo Coverage: BC/EFA's 'Bares' Launch at Splash
The theme for "Broadway Bares 17" was announced as "Myth Behavior" on Monday, March 13 as part of NextWorks - the monthly gay professionals mixer held at Splash (50 West 17th Street) and sponsored by Next Magazine.
A raffle was held at the NextWorks event, where a pair of tickets to Broadway Bares and three month gym membership to Club H Fitness were some of the prizes featured. Tony Award-nominee Christopher Sieber (Spamalot, Into the Woods) was on hand to host the NextWorks event and draw the winning raffle ticket.
"Broadway Bares" is a fundraising event for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA). According to press notes, "the hotly anticipated annual event combines the naughtiness of burlesque and the razzle-dazzle of Broadway and has been a smashing success since its inception. Created by Tony Award-winning choreographer Jerry Mitchell, the event features the hottest male and female dancers on Broadway and has become one of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS' signature events."
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the nation's leading industry-based, not for profit AIDS fundraising and grant making organization.
Tickets for the 17th Annual Broadway Bares will officially be on sale and can be purchased by going to www.broadwaycares.org. Visit www.nextmagazine.com for more on Next Magazine and on NextWorks.
