More than 150 of New York's hottest dancers are set to turn back the clock to the golden age of Broadway for an "unrivaled evening of sexy striptease" this June. (WARNING: Some images may be NSFW)

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) officials released these sizzling images and behind-the-scenes video ahead of "Broadway Bares: Top Bottoms of Burlesque," which hits Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom on June 21 and features "a cast of colorful characters for every desire and fantasy."

Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell ("Kinky Boots") returns to the director's chair in honor of the 25th anniversary of the annual Broadway Bares event. In 24 years, the show has raised more than $12.6 million for BC/EFA, and starred more than 200 of the Great White Way’s most able-bodied performers, with themes ranging from 2012's sexy storybook "Happy Endings" to the risqué rock-and-roll of "Broadway Bares: Rock Hard!" in 2014.

"A lot of things can happen in 25 years, but who would've thought that seven guys dancing on a bar could grow into an annual event that has raised so much to help people living with HIV and AIDS," Mitchell said in a statement. "Broadway Bares has done that. And this year we're going full out, maybe even with a top hat and our version of tails, ’cause if baby, you're a bottom, you're the top."
