STAGE TUBE: Watch Matthew Saldivar and Joey Taranto Rock Hard in BROADWAY BARES Opening Number!
Broadway Bares: Rock Hard!, a luscious, modern-day mix tape of sensual sights and sounds featuring 170 of New York's sexiest dancers, celebrated its move to a new home on June 22 by raising $1,386,105 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The opening number found Matthew Saldivar and Joey Taranto as dads escorting their preteen daughters to a One Direction concert. Longing for the rock concerts of their youth, the pair stepped into a dream world of hard rockers with ripped abs, voluptuous divas and randy roadies. The opening was written by Matthew Sklar and Amanda Green. Director Nick Kenkel, Paula Caselton and Sidney Erik Wright choreographed the number.

Honoring iconic music moments and songs from Elvis to Pink, Aerosmith to Prince, the 24th edition of burlesque extravaganza got a crowd of more than 5,000 people rocking, jumping and cheering for more during two performances at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom on June 22, 2014. Broadway Bares (#bwaybares) moved to Hammerstein after 15 years at the iconic Roseland Ballroom, which closed earlier this spring.
The 24 editions of Broadway Bares have now raised more than $12.6 million for Broadway Cares.
