Trailer: Joe Manganiello’s male stripper documentary “La Bare”

Joe Manganiello makes his directorial debut with this documentary exploring the world of male revues.

Following the shirtless hunks of Dallas’ La Bare, Manganiello pulls back the curtain on what he calls “a strange and provocative world hidden in plain sight.”

The film made it’s debut at Slamdance this past season and is being prepped for release this summer.

Because my husband works with the world famous Chippendales in Las Vegas, I’ve seen a lot of what happens in this environment and it’s really fascinating. Not just from the dancer’s perspective, but what the experience means to the women and how it affects them.
