Hey. You, wearing the Snuggie. We know it's cold out there, but get your act together and put on some pants, because there are way too many awesome things going on in New York City right now. Patina Miller is singing her favorite fabulous tunes, the Broadway Bares are doing what they do best (getting naked) and Frozen fans can finally duet with Idina Menzel in public. Check out this week's must-see list!
TAKE IT OFF WITH THE BARES
January 26 at XL Nightclub
The brave, buff studs of Broadway are risking frostbite to get naked for a good cause at this year’s Broadway Bares Winter Burlesque extravaganza. Tony nominee Christopher Sieber will kick off the nearly nude revue, with performances by dozens of sexy Broadway stars. Proceeds benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, and general admission tickets are a steal at $25. Click for tickets!
FALL IN LOVE WITH IDOL STARS
January 29 & 30 at 54 Below
Before you catch American Idol newlyweds Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat this spring, see them in another musical of Biblical proportions: Samson & Delilah. The sweethearts will perform an evening of pop-rock and traditional musical theater songs from the new romantic tuner by Ron Yatter. Click for tickets!
GET DIRTY AT THEATRE ROW
Opens January 29 at the Acorn Theatre
If Broadway Bares wasn’t enough nakedness for one week (come on, you can never have too much nudity), off-Broadway's Intimacy has you covered. One of the weirdest shows we’ve ever seen, Thomas Bradshaw’s wacky comedy features tons of full frontal, some suspiciously real-looking sex scenes and shooting, uh, fluids that splash into the first few rows of the audience. Have fun (and maybe bring an umbrella)? Click for tickets!
CLASS IT UP WITH PATINA MILLER
January 31 at the Allen Room
She tears it up on the trapeze every night in Pippin, but believe it or not, Patina Miller has never headlined a solo concert in New York City...until now! The Tony winner and 2013 Broadway.com Star of the Year will take the stage to perform an evening of her favorite tunes for the American Songbook series, which will be filmed for PBS' Live From Lincoln Center. Bonus: You get to gaze at this gorgeous view while Miller does her thing. Click for tickets!
SING ALONG WITH A SNOWMAN
January 31 at select movie theaters
Practice your scales and work on that side braid, because a special sing-along edition of Frozen hits theaters nationwide this week. We're imagining a Rocky Horror-style spectacular, complete with icy costumes, white hair spray and lots of magic snow flying all over the theater. (If you can't sew, don't worry, you can always buy some Elsa gear on Etsy for $1,000.) See you there, Frozen fanatics!
