Broadway Bares, the unrivaled evening of sexy striptease that benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, returns for its 26th edition!
This always sold-out annual event combines the eye-popping burlesque with the glamour and razzle-dazzle of Broadway. More than 200 of the hottest male and fema dancers in New York City take to the stage for two sensational shows.
In an evening featuring Barrett Wilbert Weed (Heathers, Bare, Found), Laura Dreyfuss (Glee, Once), and Alex Finke (Les Miserables), performers from Broadway and Off-Broadway will come together to sing music spanning the pop, rock and folk genres. Proceeds from the evening will go to Syrian refugees receiving aid from UNICEF, which is currently mobilizing the largest humanitarian operation in history.
Since the Syrian conflict began four years ago, over 12 million people, more than the entire population of New York City, have been displaced both inside the country and beyond its borders. Because bombs are still being dropped and fighting is raging with no end in sight, too many are unable to return to their homes and every day lives.
This concert is an effort to raise funds and awareness for a situation that is growing more desperate each day, and aims to serve as a reminder that the Broadway community has a special ability to bring people together to positively impact the world.
Irish Rep cast members Melissa Errico, Malcolm Gets, David Staller and Max Von Essen reprise their original roles and are joined by Jim Norton as Finian and Megan Fairchild from New York City Ballet as Susan the Silent, plus a full chorus and a cast of Broadway stars!
The groundbreaking 1947 musical follows an Irishman who steals a feisty leprechaun's pot of gold and escapes with his daughter, Sharon, to Missitucky, a mythical region in the United States that is part of the Jim Crow South. The daughter and the sprite each find romance with others, but also encounter bigotry, economic disparity and cultural injustice.
The score is spiked with such popular show tunes as "Old Devil Moon," "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?" and "Look to the Rainbow," plus spicy comic and satiric songs such as "When I'm Not Near the Girl I Love," and "When the Idle Poor Become the Idle Rich."
New York City Center's annual Gala honoring business leader and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, will include a concert performance of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's 1984 musical Sunday in the Park with George starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Funds raised allow City Center to make the best in the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audiences by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year to programs such as Fall for Dance and Encores! Off-Center.
Drag darling Cacophony Daniels sings songs from Howard Ashman's catalogue! Growing up, Courter Simmons (Broadway's Jersey Boys) always felt a special kinship with the colorful characters he saw in The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Little Shop of Horrors. Little did he know that they all sprung from the mind of Howard Ashman! Now he's all grown up and dolled up as Cacophony and in Under The 'C' will romp through Ashman's catalogue and pay tribute to the man who, from Broadway to Disney, gave so many misfits their voice. A special benefit for Harlem United.
