Broadway Bares 18

This year I was once again in attendance at the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS one night only event: Broadway Bares.

On Sunday, June 22nd...hundreds of Broadway dancers donate their time and bodies to raise money. There's always a loose story line to the evening and the performances are out of this world. This year the theme was Alice in Wonderland and everyone involved did an INCREDIBLE job.

There were a couple of theater celebrity appearances...the one the made the night for me was the amazing Julie White. She won the TONY award last year from Best Actress in a Play (for Little Dog Laughed) but a lot of people know her from last year's summer box office king, Transformers (where she played Shia LaBeouf's mom).

Here are a few snapshots from the evening...(not taken by me but worth sharing anyway).

I've been in NYC for several years now and this year was the first time that I had friends up for TONY Awards this year. It was a lot of fun sitting at home and seeing friends on TV celebrating the biggest night in theater.

Last night at my annual TONY party there was a collective cheer and outbreak of joy when In the Heights won Best Musical. I saw the show multiple times off-Broadway last year and just recently got to see it on Broadway a couple weeks ago.
