STAGE TUBE: Adam Lambert Sings 'The Star Spangled Banner' at BROADWAY BARES 23!
From sea to shining sea, this year's BROADWAY BARES crisscrossed the country in a racy, raucous road trip, exploring the United States as the 23rd annual edition of the immensely popular modern-day burlesque show delivers BROADWAY BARES 23: UNITED STRIPS OF AMERICA. Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, BROADWAY BARES 23 arrived last night, June 23, at Roseland Ballroom (239 West 52nd Street, NYC).
Adam Lambert performed "The Star Spangled Banner" to open the festivities, and you can watch him sing below!
BROADWAY BARES combines the naughtiness of burlesque with the razzle-dazzle of Broadway 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 22 editions, BROADWAY BARES has raised more than $9.8 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
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).
