BROADWAY BARES 19.0 "CLICK IT!" was produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, executive produced by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Peepshow in Las Vegas), and will be directed by Peter Gregus (Jersey Boys).
The first Broadway Bares in 1992 featured seven dancers stripping on a bar and raised over $8,000. Since then, the 18 previous editions of BROADWAY BARES have collectively raised over $5.5 million to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and grown to a full-fledged production featuring over 200 of Broadway's sexiest dancers.
The show also marked the launch of BroadwayBares.com, an online community resource presenting a front-row seat for the hottest show in town BROADWAY BARES, Broadway's finest strip down for a good cause. BroadwayBares.com gives fans of BARES a ticket behind the scenes to see Broadway's sexiest performers displaying some of their greatest assets. Gorgeous stage idols from Broadway's biggest shows will strut their stuff as you've never seen them before.
BroadwayBares.com was developed after Mitchell and iStar Web Solutions, Inc. recognized the need for an online community resource for BROADWAY BARES. The site is a place for fans to not only see their favorite Broadway dancers in and out of some very special "costumes," but also they will get to know them a little: what they dream about when they're on stage and "taking it off;" what they think about in the dressing room before, during, and after the show; and most importantly, why they feel it's important to be a part of BROADWAY BARES.
