Tonight’s Broadway Bares — the stripping and dancing revue at Roseland benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS — had a “Masterpiece” theme, with Baby It’s You!‘s Beth Leavel taunting the crowd by leering, “Are you ready to get a piece?”
And there were plenty for the taking.
In one segment, Roger Rees (The Addams Family) showed slides of valuable works he was allegedly auctioning off, like Starry Night Over the Meat Rack by Van Gogh, “who had a time share in Fire lsland.”
There was also a painting showing a penis, a van, and a lesbian.
Rees said it was entitled “Dick Van Dyke.”
But the biggest response came when he unveiled a portrait of disgraced comic Tracy Morgan.
Rees claimed this was “the lost Warhol piece entitled Your 15 Minutes Are Up. It’s also called We Can Take a Joke, but We Just Don’t Think You’re Funny.”
No, but Rees was — and that’s the naked truth.
