The lineup has been revealed for Broadway Bares: Hit the Strip, which will take place on Sunday, June 23, 2024.

All bets are off when Broadway Bares: Hit the Strip, which is produced by and benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, antes up for two performances at 9:30 pm and midnight at Hammerstein Ballroom (311 West 34th Street, NYC).

The tantalizing talent set to sizzle as striptease leads are Amber Ardolino (A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical); Ehizoje Azeke (In the Heights film); Kristina Doucette (Here Lies Love); burlesque star Jake Dupree; Aydin Eyikan (Wicked); Michael Graceffa (TV's Welcome to Chippendales); 2024 Tony nominee Amber Iman (Lempicka); Nick Kenkel, longtime Broadway Bares director, choreographer and performer; Cajai Kennedy (Wicked); Wayne “Juice” Mackins (The Prom); Yani Marin (Bob Fosse's Dancin'); Elliot Mattox (Titanique); Jimin Moon (Lempicka); Benjamin Rivera (Aladdin); Alvin Ailey School and Martha Graham Center instructor Ben Schultz; and Andrew Slane (TV's The Other Two).

He is joined by associate director Paula DeLuise and assistant director Andres Acosta.

The choreographers lighting up the strip, in addition to Stancil, are John Alix, Mike Baerga, Phil Colgan, Karla Puno Garcia, Billy Griffin, Amber Jackson, Jonathan Lee, Leo Moctezuma, Rachelle Rak, Michael Lee Scott and Maleek Washington.

A very limited number of midnight tickets remain for the always popular "Stripper Spectacular" package, which includes a premium reserved table seat at either show and an invitation to a private cocktail party at Mitchell's home.

The evening will help provide meals and medication, health care and hope to people across the country living with HIV/AIDS or facing other life-threatening illnesses and personal crises.

At Broadway Bares: Hit the Strip, pleasure seekers will be immersed in the glitz and glamor of the strip, with full-out production numbers that explore Vegas' most iconic landmarks, sultry hangouts, exhilarating parties and iconic characters. The ultimate way to launch into NYC Pride week features more than 175 of New York City's most coveted dancers.

Last year's standing-room-only edition took the audience on the rousing ride of their life at Broadway Bares: Pleasure Park and raised $1.88 million, bringing Bares' lifetime total to more than $26 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway Bares receives generous support from presenting sponsor M∙A∙C Viva Glam and lead corporate sponsors United Airlines, the official airline of Broadway Cares, ViiV Healthcare, and BIKE Athletic.
