Some things get sexier with age.

Tony-winner Jerry Mitchell, the creator of Broadway Bares, will return to direct the 25th edition of the annual burlesque event, which benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway Bares will be presented June 21, 2015, at Hammerstein Ballroom with more than 200 of the New York theater community's hottest male and female dancers showing off for a great cause. The theme and special celebrity guests will be announced in the spring.

Mitchell, a celebrated gay director and choreographer who most recently worked on Broadway's Kinky Boots, directed the first 13 editions of Broadway Bares, and has served as the executive producer ever since.

"What started as me and six Broadway friends wanting to do more for Broadway Cares has turned into an annual night-to-remember that you simply can't miss," said Mitchell, who debuted Broadway Bares while he was dancer in The Will Rogers Follies. "I created a show from my heart and audiences have continued to embrace it. Now every year, we get to take off our clothes, raise a heck of a lot of money, and truly make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children across the country."

The first edition of Broadway Bares raised $8,000. Last year's Broadway Bares: Rock Hard! raised $1,386,105, which brings the grand Bares total to $12.6 million raised in the past quarter-century.

Prices for the event range from $50 to $1000; an exclusive VIP "Stripper Spectacular" package includes admission to a private cocktail party with Mitchell.
