The fabulous “Stripper Spectacular” package includes a premium reserved table seat at either show with specialty cocktails, admission to a private cocktail party with Broadway Bares creator and executive producer Jerry Mitchell and a backstage tour. The “Barest Backstage Insider Experience” includes a premium reserved table seat at the midnight show with specialty cocktails, a pre-show, behind-the-scenes backstage tour and access to the final “undressed” rehearsal the evening of the show.

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by 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 celebrated its 26th edition with a tech-savvy, television-inspired spectacular. Broadway Bares: On Demand raised $1,482,724. The 26 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $15.8 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The presenting sponsor of Broadway Bares is M∙A∙C VIVA Glam with generous support from corporate partner United Airlines.

Broadway Backwards

Al Hirschfeld Theatre, 302 West 45th Street, NYC

The Broadway community will come together once again for Broadway Backwards, an annual celebration of unity, equality and love through gender-reversed performances of classic showtunes.

Tickets are now on sale for this 12th annual evening produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and benefiting Broadway Cares and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City.

The star-studded event features performances of quintessential Broadway tunes with a twist: men sing songs originally intended for women, and vice versa. Artists will perform the great songs of musical theatre while freeing themselves of the bounds of gender norms. It’s a show where gender doesn’t matter, but love does.

This exhilarating evening will include one-of-a-kind, unforgettable performances from celebrated stars of stage and screen including Sierra Boggess, Tony nominee Alex Brightman, two-time Emmy nominee Tituss Burgess, Tony winner Len Cariou, Ariana DeBose, Lora Lee Gayer, Tony winner John Glover, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Rachel Bay Jones, Tony winner Levi Kreis, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Javier Muñoz, Tony nominee Bobby Steggert, Tony nominee Andrew Rannells, Bobby Conte Thornton, two-time Golden Globe winner, Tony nominee and Oscar nominee Kathleen Turner and Rachel York.

More special guests will be announced soon. Performers are subject to change.

VIP tickets include premium seats and a special post-show cocktail reception with the cast. A limited number of “Backstage & Beyond” ticket packages also are available, which include the opportunity to see the dress rehearsal, exclusive backstage access, a meet-and-greet with some of the stars of Broadway Backwards, premium seats for the show and more.

Creator Robert Bartley will return to direct the show. He will be joined by Mary-Mitchell Campbell as music supervisor and Laura Bergquist as music director. Choreography will be created by Bartley, Christopher Rice and Adam Roberts.

Last year’s inspiring performance raised a record $480,287. It featured a 67-person cast of Broadway and television’s best, backed by a live onstage orchestra.

What began as a small, grassroots concert performed at The Center in 2006 quickly grew into a highly-anticipated event presented in Broadway’s best theatres. In its 11 editions, Broadway Backwards has raised more than $2.8 million for Broadway Cares and The Center.
