This year's Broadway Bares featured special appearances by theatre favorites Alan Cumming (Cabaret), Andy Karl (Rocky), Lesli Margherita (Matilda The Musical), Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages), Patrick Page (Casa Valentina) and Christopher Sieber (Matilda The Musical). Additional celebrity guests included inspiring Marine-turned-model Alex Minsky and recent "RuPaul's Drag Race" season six winner Bianca Del Rio. Broadway Bares: Rock Hard!, featuring New York's sexiest and most talented dancers in an unforgettable burlesque spectacular, turned up the volume with special guest stars Morgan James (Motown The Musical), Matthew Saldivar (Act One), Joey Taranto (Kinky Boots) and Syndee Winters (Motown The Musical).

Broadway Bares was created by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), who also serves as executive producer. It is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, led by Producing Director Michael Graziano. This year's edition is directed by Nick Kenkel (Catch Me If You Can, Peepshow, Legally Blonde), who also directed last year's Broadway Bares: United Strips of America.

Broadway Bares combines the naughtiness of burlesque with the razzle-dazzle ofBroadway and has been a smashing success since its inception in 1992. The event, featuring the hottest male and female dancers on Broadway, has become one of BC/EFA's signature events. The first Broadway Bares featured just seven dancers performing choreographed stripteases on a bar and raised more than $8,000. Through 23 editions, Broadway Bares has raised more than $11.3 million forBroadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
