PHOTOS: A Burlesque for Every Month of the Year


By Editors

The 24th season of Broadway Bares kicked off with Winter Burlesque, raising big bucks for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Opening Number: Christopher Sieber and Company

The 24th season kicked off on Sunday with a standing-room only crowd at New York City's XL Nightclub. This year's edition of Winter Burlesque, dubbed "Calendar Girl," proves to be yet another campy show and has raised $32,781 so far for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

No matter what your favorite month may be, the "live-action pin-up calendar" never disappoints. The opening number features two-time Tony Award nominee and Bares favorite Christopher Sieber (Pippin, Shrek the Musical, Spamalot), and the finale includes recording artist and Broadway veteran Matt Zarley. And let's not forget the cast of 25 of New York's most talented (and sexy) dancers.
