Another reason for theater geeks (especially gay theater geeks) to rue not living in New York: the annual burlesque-for-a-cause Broadway Bares was presented this past Sunday night, with the best bods on Broadway (male and female) on display to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This year's sold-old event was a resounding success, taking in $874,372 for the charity and beating last year's record by over a hundred grand.
Themed after Lewis Carroll's classic Through the Looking Glass stories, Wonderland featured such hot talent as Mary Birdsong (as Alice), Tituss Burgess (as the White Rabbit), Nathan Lane, Andrea Martin, Matthew Morrison (as Humpty Dumpty), Christopher Sieber and Jerry Mitchell, who created the show 18 years ago.
