Over its illustrious 30-year history, Broadway Bares has taken audiences on a variety of voyeuristic voyages.

Laya Barak will return to direct, with Jonathan Lee as associate director and Bares creator Jerry Mitchell and longtime director and performer Nick Kenkel as executive producers.

The choreographers taking on the task of creating audience-enthralling entertainment, in addition to Barak, Kenkel and Lee, are Al Blackstone, Jessica Castro, Armando Farfan, Ricky Hinds, Stephanie Klemons, Sekou McMiller, Michael Lee Scott, Gabby Sorrentino, Kellen Stancil, Andrew Turteltaub and James Alonzo White.

"We've been waiting to celebrate our 30th anniversary in person for two years and we are going FULL OUT," Mitchell said. "It's time to celebrate life and raise money to help provide meals and medication, health care and hope for those who need a little help right now. Whether it's been three years or 10 years since you last saw Bares , our 30th edition will be a show for the ages."
