The hotties of Broadway prepare to strip for Broadway Bares: Game Night.
A star-studded lineup of Broadway’s best will take part in a flirty evening of fun, games and unparalleled striptease at Broadway Bares: Game Night. This year’s event has two showings; one at 9:30 p.m. and a second run at midnight on Sunday, June 17, 2018. The evening is produced by and benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of the American theatre community, the organization has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States. Last year, the event’s 27th edition went back to school with unparalleled sexiness at Broadway Bares: Strip U, and raised $1,568,114. The 27 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $17.4 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
