Beloved Broadway shows were stripped down, sexied up and given a Broadway Bares twist at this year’s edition of Broadway Bares Fire Island. Inspired by some of the theatre’s greatest hits and set to pop music, the evening brought Broadway style to classic striptease.
Twenty-six of New York City’s best dancers came together in Fire Island Pines on June 3, 2017, and raised a record-breaking $56,533 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway Bares Fire Island was directed by Michael Lee Scott, who also choreographed the show with Tammy Colucci, Abreu, Acosta, Davis and Wright. Justin Scribner served as production stage manager. The evening was presented in association with Fire Island Pines Art Project.
