BWW Flashback: Get Ready for Tonight's BROADWAY BARES with a Look Back at 2012's!

From sea to shining sea, this year's BROADWAY BARES will crisscross 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 will arrive tonight, June 23, for two performances only - at 9:30 PM & Midnight - at Roseland Ballroom (239 West 52nd Street, NYC).

To get ready for tonight, check out a flashback from last year's show, HAPPY ENDINGS, which raised a whopping $1,254,000 Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. BroadwayWorld was there to capture all the excitement, fun and sexiness backstage!

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).
