PHOTOS: Broadway Bares Winter Burlesque Heats Up New York


PHOTOS: Held every summer, Broadway Bares is the capstone fundraising event for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and features genetically blessed chorus boys and girls performing scandalous routines for appreciative fans.

But who can wait for summer? BC/EFA held a special Winter Burlesque on Sunday night to warm up our cold winter souls. Directed by Michael Lee Scott , the sizzling show featured stripteases, songs and dance routines from more than 25 amazing talents, including Jen Cody, Matt Zarley, Cesar Abreu, Nathaniel Braga, Stephan Choiniere,  Lauren Gemelli, Andrew Glaszek, Sarah Grooms, Jenny Gruby, and Justin Smith.

By the end of the night, the event netted $35,428 for BC/EFA—and let us tell you, stuffing a $20 into a Broadway dancer’s G-string is the most fun we’ve ever had for a good cause.

    @Katbox: who ? the guy in the top pic with the tattoo along the belly button line !?

  • viveutvivas

    Yum, that hottie in the middle is an amazing talent indeed.

  • Brian

    This just looks very sleazy. Way to go to confirm stereotypes about gay men being obsessed with sex. Sad…sad, sad, sad, sad.

  • balehead

    Straights are obsessed too..

  • viveutvivas

    There is nothing wrong with sex, or being obsessed with it. Get that broomstick out of your behind.

    @Brian: You did see where it said “Burlesque” show, right? Straight burlesque shows are pretty obsessed with sex.

  • Rock2XL

    @Brian: BRIAN’S SONG is indeed a sad…, sad, sad, sad — 1 more — sad movie! It wasn’t about you though! Jason hit the nail on the head — it’s burlesque, and straight burlesque oftentimes included nudity. These are attractive men and “girls,” strutting their stuff for charity! God bless them! Brian, try a new song, like “DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY! ” It’s not that old, but look it up, if necessary!

    Being obsessed with sex is a gay and straight thing. I hear how the straight guys where I work talk, they’re the same when talking about women. Ever hear of the restaurant Hooters?? The guy in the last pic is hot. Those guys do like to show skin:)
