LOOKING BACK AT BROADWAY BARES...AND LOOKING AHEAD
Broadway Bares is a 20-year tradition here in New York, one that's raked in over $7.5 million to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This year alone the one-night-only spectacle—made up of Broadway's best dancers and a few of its favorite stars sizzling through burlesque numbers that leave many of them an errant sneeze away from nudity—broke its own record, collecting $1,015,985 for the charity. I went and reported on it extensively here.

Broadway Bares 2010
Take 220 of Broadway's sexiest dancers, put them together on one stage, take off their clothes and you've got yourself the biggest charity event since Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett. In the last 20 years, Broadway Bares, an annual burlesque benefit put on by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has become the must-see gay event of the year. And for good reason. Where else can you enjoy grade-A tail while being charitable? The money goes to seven different AIDS groups and make no mistake, it's no chump change. This year they made more than a million dollars... not bad, considering we're in the middle of an economic crisis.

SCENE + HEARD: Rufskin And Broadway Bares Boys Cause Pop-Ups On Eighth Avenue
It doesn’t take much to turn heads in a neighborhood like Chelsea, but the Rufskin pop-up store on Eighth Avenue found a rather enticing way to stop traffic in front of their huge windows last night, when they hosted the boys of this Sunday’s Broadway Bares 20 for a fundraiser and shopping extravaganza. The gays sipped complimentary drinks and previewed merchandise both on hangers and on the scantily clad Broadway beefcakes. We caught up with Rufskin’s global sales director Jason Wimberly, who reminds all you procrastinators time is running out to visit the temporary shop. “We’re here for three months with one more left to go,” he says. ”This pop-up will go to Atlanta in the fall—We travel around and bring nudity to your hometown! After that, we'll be looking for a fulltime space on Eighth Avenue. It was a strategic plan because we’re much larger in other [areas]—specifically in Asia and Europre—so we really wanted to increase our market presence in the United States."

Peter Gregus
photo by Aubrey Reuben
Peter Gregus, who created the role of Bob Crewe in the Tony-winning Jersey Boys, will direct this year's Broadway Bares fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Entitled Broadway Bares 19.0 "Click It!", the June 21 fundraiser will be held at the Roseland Ballroom. Two Broadway Bares shows will be presented that Sunday: at 9:30 PM and midnight. The Roseland Ballroom is located in New York City at 239 West 52nd Street.

The fundraiser is produced by BC/EFA and executive-produced by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell.

The 18th annual Broadway Bares, which was held June 22, 2008, was another record breaker, raising $874,372 for BC/EFA. Last year's fundraiser was directed by Denis Jones.

To date, Broadway Bares has raised over $5.5 million for BC/EFA.

A little Bares history: Nearly 20 years ago, Legally Blonde's Mitchell, who once danced nearly naked on a drum in The Will Rogers Follies, found himself inspired to take it all off to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and Broadway Bares was born. The first year, he and seven other Broadway dancers raised $8,000 for the charitable organization.

Tickets to the Bares fundraiser are on sale by calling (212) 840-0770, ext. 268 or by visiting www.BroadwayCares.org.
