[mah bucket list #2] Broadway Bares

Posted 06-16-2012 at 11:55 PM by kuyaBaka
So, I've decided to start a series of blog posts about things I want to do/places I want to go before I die (aka a bucket list). I decided since I really wanted to go to the Weiner's Circle (my last post: /forum/blogs/kuyabak...rs-circle.html ), that I'd kind of spring off that idea and make another post about something else I'd like to go to.


So here's my #2: I want to attend a Broadway Bares performance.

For those of you who don't know, it's a burlesque show starring Broadway actors and actresses raising money for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDs (BC/EFA) organization. This, being a branch of what the whole team does, puts on a strip show for a large audience filled with music, dancing, and lots and lots of skin (and some witty banter with a few of the skits).

I was first introduced to this just recently (by that meaning just a few days ago), when I stumbled upon a poster for their show tomorrow (June 17) on tumblr. I'm not completely sure if it's really SFW so I won't bother posting it here, but you're free to google it on your own terms. It was a striking photograph of Prince Charming holding a pillow with Cinderella's glass shoe on top. But the most eye-catching part was the fact that he was naked; sitting on a chair with nothing but boots, a cape, his armored gloves, and a shoulder piece -- ohh-la-la.

Curious as to what it was, I did my research and found a few videos and pictures from past performances, as well as more information as to what the hell is going on.

Here's a clip of their performance two years ago themed "Strip-opoly," starring Euan Morton, Vanessa Williams and Kristen Chenoweth. This was probably the less NSFW I could find without anything too hypersexual.



Why would I go to this?
Well first it's for a good cause, and it's not your ordinary kind of fundraiser. It's not something like a Relay for Life walk where you walk laps to raise money. It's not a bake sale or anything, either. It's a burlesque strip show. It's fun! One of those things you don't see very often, if at all. And come on, those are some sexy-ass people dancing on stage.

    I remember reading about this.

    Not sure if you've seen this. It's semi-NSFW so be warned.

    The Prince Charming picture was hot though. :>
