Broadway Bares 23 Raises Record $1.4M For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

On Sunday night Father Tony and I attended the 23rd annual Broadway Bares, where a couple of hundred of Broadway's finest hoofers danced, stripped, pumped, flipped, and spun about on multi-man lighted wheels. Featured stars included Alan Cumming, Judith Light, Andy Cohen, and Adam Lambert, who sang the national anthem. Broadway Cares reports:
Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America, a randy road trip of modern-day burlesque featuring 220 of New York's sexiest dancers, raised an all-time record high for the fourth year in a row on Sunday, hitting $1,430,241 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  The 23rd edition of the consistently sold-out annual show celebrated America's fruited plains and mountains majesties with a host of spectacular stripteases. As more than 6,000 people packed Roseland Ballroom for two performances on June 23 they discovered and uncovered beach babes in California, a sexy Chicago speakeasy, sassy sister wives and a nearly naked groom in Utah, a sensual under sea adventure in Maine, rowdy cheerleaders riding stripped down Texas cowboys and more.  With this year's record total, the 23 editions of BROADWAY BARES have now raised more than $11.3 million for Broadway Cares.
