Broadway Bares, the hottest burlesque show around, opened the summer season with another seductive edition of Broadway Bares Fire Island. The sexy men and women of the Great White Way returned to New York's Fire Island Pines last Saturday for two sold-out performances, raising $51,733 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Created exclusively for Fire Island by director Michael Lee Scott, this intimate version of the annual New York City extravaganza took audiences on a sensual romp inspired by mobile apps. With characters ranging from lusty lumberjacks to frisky fitness instructors, Broadway Bares Fire Island brought these highly intimate electronic encounters to life onstage.
The event provided an intimate preview of this summer’s 26th edition of Broadway Bares, which will fill NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, June 19, with shows at 9:30 p.m. and midnight. This year’s Broadway Bares: On Demand tackles the boob tube in an unrivaled evening of sexy striptease production numbers and will feature a cast of more than 150 colorful and carnal characters. Tickets and more information are available at BroadwayCares.org.
