Broadway Bares 'zooms in' online Aug. 1

Broadway Bares, the annual striptease music and dance fundraiser for AIDS charities, goes online for a special in-home viewing of the always sold out New York City event.

The annual event, which features dozens of Broadway's talented -and gorgeous- male and female dancers, singers and actors, benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Although free to stream on Playbill and BroadwayCares' websites, donations will be taken online throughout the show.

The in-person 30th anniversary celebration, originally set for June 21, was postponed until 2021. The August 1 evening will live on digitally through streamed stripteases featuring New York City dancers.

Viewers can expect new performances that make social distancing sexy, plus favorite numbers from years past and new appearances by special celebrity guests to be announced.

"We're so excited to bring the heat of Broadway Bares to screens around the world for the first time with Broadway Bares: Zoom In," Bares creator and Tony winner Jerry Mitchell said in a statement. "This year's performers have gone full-out in both their show-stopping dance moves and desire to make a difference. You've got to Zoom In, because it's sure to make your laptop tingle and your cell phone vibrate!"

The 29 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $21.2 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, one of the nation's leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations.

Every dollar will help those across the country affected by HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, and other critical illnesses receive healthy meals, lifesaving medication, emergency financial assistance, housing, counseling, and more. The donations also support and champion organizations focused on social justice and anti-racism.

Sponsorship opportunities, which include pre- and post-show virtual cocktails parties with performers and recognition during the show, are available at
