Broadway Bares is heading back to school for its 27th annual edition of the showbiz striptease, which will take place June 18 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Showtimes are 9:30 PM and midnight.
Broadway Bares: Strip U will feature more than 150 male and female dancers—joined by a slate of special guests to-be-announced—in “an unrivaled evening of seductive striptease production numbers with an academic twist.” Ticket details are at BroadwayCares.org.

According to Broadway Bares, “Class will be in session this summer at the only college campus where clothing is optional and bodacious burlesque is always in the curriculum. Using the collegiate theme as a jumping off point, Broadway Bares: Strip U combines the winking humor of classic burlesque with today’s pop music to create a truly unparalleled show. Imagine the Broadway Bares take on a science lab exploding with sizzling chemistry or sculpted studs exhibiting model behavior in art class. You could wait to watch highlights online, but there’s nothing like experiencing the live show where anything can happen.”
The 2017 edition of the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS fundraiser is conceived and directed by Nick Kenkel (Half Time, Saturday Night Live, Peepshow).
