29th Annual Broadway Bares Show to Be Held This Sunday

The famed burlesque-style revue Broadway Bares will take New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom by storm for its 29th edition this Sunday. The lucky thousands who will pack the house won’t be feeling at all guilty about shelling out cash for the chance to see some dancing six-packs and Speedo bulges, though—the money benefits a very good cause. That cause is the grant-making nonprofit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

Dancer Josh Cotham raised what for him was an unprecedented amount thanks to the support of his friend Brian Rice.
