On Sunday night (20th September 2015), Graham Norton hosted West End Bares 2015 ‘Take Off’ at Café De Paris. Check out arrival and performance snaps below (click image to enlarge).
Soul Queen turned West End Diva Beverley Knight stole the show by leading the spectacular finale. There were also special appearances from Ru Paul’s Drag Race stars Bianca Del Rio and Michelle Visage, comedian Joe Lycett, Strictly Come Dancing's Robin Windsor and West End performer Velma Celli. VIP Guests included Gemma Oaten, Jade Thirlwall, Paisley Billings, Verity Rushworth and Marcus Collins.
Now in its 6th year, West End Bares combines the naughtiness of burlesque along with the razzle dazzle of the West End featuring the hottest performers currently appearing in the West End. The evening is based on the original concept ‘Broadway Bares’ by legendary Broadway and West End director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Cast members from American Idiot, Cats, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Gypsy, Mamma Mia!, Matilda, Memphis, Miss Saigon, Sinatra and Wicked took to the stage throughout the evening.
