This year's installment of the annual fundraiser, "Broadway Bares: On Demand," featured elaborately staged vignettes including a home improvement show, a fitness routine and even "American Idol."

Nearly 200 of Manhattan's most-able bodied dancers stripped down for those numbers and others, including "Scared Stiff," a number which spoofed horror classics like "Friday the 13th" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" to the tune of Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now." More amusing, still, was "Soakin' Wet," a spectacularly randy weather report. 

The tragic June 12 mass shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub wasn't far from the minds of the cast and creatives at the one-night-only event. Director Nick Kenkel offered a heartfelt tribute to the 49 victims of the massacre and their loved ones at the evening's finale, dedicating the performance to "our family in Orlando."

Ultimately, it was for a great cause, too, as the night's two performances raised $1,482,724 for Broadway Bares/Equity Fights AIDS, a non-profit group dedicated to AIDS-related causes across the U.S.
