Watch dress rehearsal of Broadway Bares: Game Night, where the lights went down and the clothes came off in a rambunctious round of flashlight tag that enveloped the entire audience, led by Javier Perez and choreographed by John Alix. Six aerialists from Las Vegas’ acclaimed Living Art of Armando, choreographed by Armando Farfan Jr., added a flashlight-fueled aerial routine above the dancers on stage and in the crowd, immersed on every level of Hammerstein Ballroom.
