A roster of Tony winners and nominees is set to appear in Broadway Bares XXI: Masterpiece, which will be held on June 19 at Roseland Ballroom. The celebrity performers will join more than 200 of Broadway’s sexiest dancers at two performances of the annual burlesque show, a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
The art auction-themed Masterpiece will open with Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (Baby It's You) singing an original number, "Going, Going, Gone," written by Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar. Tony nominee Patina Miller (Sister Act) will perform the finale, “The Final Masterpiece.”
Other special guests include 2011 Tony nominees Judith Light (Lombardi) and Rory O'Malley (The Book of Mormon), Emmy winner Jim Parsons (The Normal Heart), Tony and Emmy winner David Hyde Pierce (La Béte), Tony winner Roger Rees (The Addams Family), Tony nominee Christopher Sieber (La Cage aux Folles) and New York Post theater columnist Michael Riedel.
Broadway Bares XXI: Masterpiece is executive produced by event founder Jerry and directed by Josh Rhodes.
