Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. In Broadway Bares’ first year, Mitchell and six of his friends danced on a New York City bar and raised $8,000.
At last year’s 28th edition, board games were anything but boring as Broadway Bares: Game Night raised $1,875,090. The 28 editions of Broadway Bares have raised $19.1 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
