Get ready to bare it all out! World-class choreography will explode into spectacular, larger-than-life striptease when Broadway Bares returns with two performances featuring more than 150 of New York City’s most scintillating dancers on Sunday, June 23rd, 2024, at Hammerstein Ballroom. 

Shows at 9:30 pm and midnight will start your NYC Pride Week sizzling with full-out and fabulous production numbers in a one-night-only extravaganza of tantalizing talent and incomparable performances.

This year’s electric theme will be announced in May.

“From Bares’ humble beginnings of dancers stripping for a cause on top of the bar of Splash in Chelsea to the herculean, show-stopping spectacle the show is today, at the core of Broadway Bares is heart. Every strut, strip and mindblowing dance move at Hammerstein translates into meals and medication, health care and hope for people facing critical illnesses in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.” said Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS 

Joining Stancil as associate director is Paula DeLuise. Mitchell and Nick Kenkel, a longtime Bares director and performer, are executive producers. 

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Mitchell during his time as a Broadway dancer. Looking for a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS, Mitchell and six of his friends danced atop a New York City bar and raised $8,000 in Broadway Bares’ first iteration.

Last year’s standing-room-only edition took the audience on the rousing ride of their life at Broadway Bares: Pleasure Park and raised $1.88 million, bringing its lifetime total to more than $26 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway Bares receives generous support from presenting sponsor M∙A∙C Viva Glam and lead corporate sponsors United Airlines, the official airline of Broadway Cares, and ViiV Healthcare.
