PICS: American Beauties of 'Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America'

By: Editors

Broadway Bares 23: United Strips of America, a randy road trip of modern-day burlesque featuring 220 of New York's sexiest dancers, raised an all-time record on Sunday to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The 23rd edition of the consistently sold-out annual show hit $1,430,241 by celebrating America's fruited plains and mountain majesties with a host of spectacular stripteases. As more than 6,000 people packed Roseland Ballroom for two performances on June 23, they discovered and uncovered beach babes in California, a sexy Chicago speakeasy, sassy sister wives of a nearly naked groom in Utah, a sensual undersea adventure in Maine, rowdy cheerleaders riding Texas cowboys, and more.

With this year's record total, the 23 editions of Broadway Bares — created by Tony-winning director-choreographer Jerry Mitchell, who serves as executive producer — have now raised more than $11.3 million for BC/EFA.
