Strip Reel

WATCH: The Men Of Broadway Bare All In Solo Strips

Above is a highlight reel of Broadway Bares: Solo Strips, which was performed on May 5th at XL Nightclub. The show is an annual male-only strip show put on by the hottest men from Broadway. Eleven men, including Matt Anctil, Patrick Boyd, James Brown III, Timothy Hughes, John Paul LaPorte, Patrick McCollum, Peter Nelson, Daniel Robinson, Matthew Rossoff, Dennis Stowe and Sheldon Tucker, helped raise $13,177 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. (Check out photos of the guys.)

The teaser event comes ahead of the main show, Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America, on June 23rd at Roseland Ballroom. (Watch a preview of the upcoming event.)

    What are they, chorus boys? Never heard of any of them.

    That’s so NOT hot.

    Um… when did this style of strip routine become ‘hot’? All of this choreography is very, very feminine. You could call it “fierce.” It’s serpentine, slithery, seductive, alluring.

    Here’s what it’s not: masculine, butch or macho.

    The classic dance routines of the Chippendales set a precedent that these boys have utterly obliterated.

    We could have a RICH debate about whether or not this is a GOOD thing. Today’s young gays are embracing their inner princess in a world that increasingly welcomes and celebrates it; we could say that if it weren’t for all that envelope pushing by the lispy-fringe, the butch ballers of the NBA might not have space to come out and live proudly.

    Personally, I’d rather see choreography from someone who convinces me that he’d be as masculine and strong in bed as he is on stage. If Gene Kelly or Jack Cole could have done strip routines of their own, it’d be something to marvel at.

    But if nothing else, I’ll call this a stylistic fail, if only for repeating themselves far too often.

    Simply putting a guy into an archetypal male machismo outfit — the fire fighter, the business man, the daddy — does nothing if he turns into a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader the moment the pants come off.

    @GMB:

    Why does every man have to fit into your narrow definition of what is “masculine”?

    There are plenty of men who meet your criteria, so why not let the “lispy-fringe” be themselves?

    @GMB: I’m glad there is equal opportunity for idiots to post here.

    I tend to agree with GWB – but mostly because the first few dancers decided to affect hyper-butch costumes, then started dancing like Britney. Very dissonant.

    And Jeez that was a bad choice of music – the Benny Hill music would have been more erotic than that ill-fitting trance.

    @Homophile: Well said. There is nothing wrong with guys being feminine. The only people that seem to still bitch about it are overly-cisgendered men that are afraid of letting anything feminine come out in themselves so they make stupid claims like, “if I wanted to date a woman, I’d be straight” and other stupid crap.

    This was also just the precursor to the main event. The main event attracts much more recognizable names. My partner has a major thing for Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Hairspray, Gossip Girl and a slew of other productions) who normally does the main show every year. So, we could very possibly end up going if the event is not sold out by the time we make up our minds.
