The rock musical Bare is set for a limited engagement at Off-Broadway’s New World Stages. Directed by Stafford Arima (Carrie, Altar Boyz) and choreographed by Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance), Bare begins performances November 19 with an opening night set for December 9. Casting has yet to be announced.
Featuring music by Damon Intrabartolo, a book and lyrics by Jon Hartmere and additional songs by Hartmere and Lynne Shankel, Bare is the story of a group of teens as they wrestle with their identities, sexuality and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. As their final year of high school draws to a close, they attempt to navigate the complex road from adolescence to adulthood and must then deal with the consequences of their choices as they prepare to take the next step in their lives.
Bare had its world premiere at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles, CA, on October 14, 2000 and ran through February 25, 2001. Following the Los Angeles production, Bare then had New York run at the American Theatre of Actors during the spring of 2004.
