Broadway Bares: Dancers Drop Clothes to Raise Money

Paul Wright August 4, 2020

Broadway Bares is an annual raunchy dance spectacular performed by Broadway dancers and actors  to raise money for HIV causes in the US. Started in 1992 by choreographer and director Jerry Mitchell, whose theatre credits include La Cage aux Folles, The Full Monty, Kinky Boots and Pretty Woman on the Great White Way and in the West End, Broadway Bares has to date raised over $21 million.

As with many other live events in 2020, Broadway Bares went virtual this year, titled Broadway Bares Zoom In and included highlights from its colourful history of burlesque for a good cause. The 2019 edition featured Billy Porter who came to global prominence as Pray Tell in the television series Pose. The 30th anniversary edition has been rescheduled to 2021. Broadway Bares is organised and staged by Broadway Cares/Equity Fighting Aids which was honoured with a Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre award in 1993.
