Broadway Bares: Game Night is directed by Nick Kenkel, co-choreographer of the just-opened Half Time at Paper Mill Playhouse and director/choreographer of NBC's upcoming The Voice residency in Las Vegas, and Laya Barak, an accomplished dancer and choreographer whose work has appeared in the last four editions of Broadway Bares. Aaron Hamilton serves as associate director.
Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Tony Award winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. In Broadway Bares' first year, Mitchell and six of his friends danced on a New York City bar and raised $8,000.
Last year, the event's 27th edition went back to school with unparalleled sexiness at Broadway Bares: Strip U, and raised $1,568,114. The 27 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $17.4 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
In addition to presenting sponsor MAC VIVA Glam, Broadway Bares receives generous support from Broadway Cares corporate partner United Airlines.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation's leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative and the Samuel J. Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts. Broadway Cares also awards annual grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations in all 50 states, providing lifesaving medication, healthy meals, counseling and emergency assistance.
