Each year, studly cast members from some of Broadway’s biggest shows vie for the crown at the Broadway Beauty Pageant, a benefit for New York’s Ali Forney Center.

Last night at Industry in Hell’s Kitchen, this year’s contenders were thrown to the wolves  introduced to an appreciative crowd: On May 20, Callan Bergmann (Silence! The Musical), Julius C. Carter (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark), Yurel Echezarreta (Matilda), Matthew Goodrich (The Nance), Orion Griffiths (Pippin), and Paul HeeSang Miller (Mamma Mia!) will try to outshine each other in a series of Miss America-style categories, including talent, interview and, yes, swimsuit (Thank you, Lord!).

Celebrity judges at this year’s Broadway Beauty Pageant, hosted by Tovah Feldshuh on May 20, include Pippin’s Andrea Martin, Kinky Boots’ Billy Porter and Buyer and Cellar’s Michael Urie.

Below, meet the competitors at this year’s Broadway Beauty Pageant
