30th Anniversary of Broadway Bares Postponed

Broadway Bares‘ 30th anniversary event, scheduled for Sunday, June 21, 2020, is being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The annual striptease spectacular will return to New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom when it is safe again to do so.

If you purchased tickets for 2020 and have not been contacted by email, please reach out to tickets@broadwaycares.org.

While the June spectacle has been postponed, plans are in the works to still celebrate Broadway Bares online in the summer. Details will be announced in June.

Sadly, the lifesaving fundraising of Broadway Bares is needed more now than ever before. Donations in support of Broadway Bares help provide health and hope to those most in need today, friends and neighbors who are often forgotten, left behind or abandoned by the federal government’s response to the pandemic.

Also, Broadway Bares Fire Island, typically held the Saturday after Memorial Day, has been canceled for 2020.

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Jerry 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, Broadway Bares took stars and fans alike on a romp around the world at Broadway Bares: Take Off. The tantalizing twist on travel raised a record-breaking $2,006,192. The 29 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $21.2 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway Bares receives generous support from presenting sponsor M∙A∙C VIVA Glam with additional support from Creative Artists Agency, GS New York and New York Marriott Marquis.
