Opening Number: Christopher Sieber and Company

We know you've been waiting for the return of Broadway Bares. The 24th season kicked off on Sunday with another scintillating show, raising $32,781 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

A standing-room only crowd at New York City's XL Nightclub watched this year's edition of Winter Burlesque, dubbed "Calendar Girl," a live-action pin-up calendar never disappoints no matter what your favorite month. The opening number featured two-time Tony Award nominee and Bares favorite Christopher Sieber (Pippin, Shrek the Musical, Spamalot), and the finale included recording artist and Broadway veteran Matt Zarley, plus a cast of 25 of New York's most talented and sexy dancers.
