The end of March is one of my favorite times on the theatre calendar. Sure, a bunch of new shows are opening in a flurry to get in by the end of the season. But this time of year always marks the announcement of my favorite annual charity, Broadway Bares. Well, like clockwork, on the last Thursday of March, the Powers That Be announced information for edition 22!
Timely as they always are, the latest version will capitalize on the current craze for all things "fairy tales." No, I'm not talking about a dirty version of Into the Woods - I'll leave that to the show in Central Park this summer. No, I'm talking about Broadway Bares XXII: Happy Endings. Fairy tales will take on a whole new meaning after the best of Broadway's dancers get done with them! (Click on the photos to, uh, enlarge them.)
This year's show will play Roseland on Sunday, June 17 at 9:30 and midnight. Founder Jerry Mitchell will executive produce and Lee Wilkins will direct.
