ABOUT THE SHOW

Through its pulsating rock score and emotionally charged story, BARE has thrilled and moved audiences around the world since its first staging in Los Angeles over a decade ago.

A contemporary rock musical, BARE follows a group of teens wrestling with issues of identity, sexuality, and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. Provocative, raw, and unyielding in its exploration of how today's generation navigates the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood, BARE examines the consequences of baring a soul-or hiding it from those who matter most.

Opening November 2012 at New World Stages in the heart of Manhattan's theater district, this all-new production boasts an electrifying creative team including internationally acclaimed director Stafford Arima, Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall, and Tony award-winning set designer Donyale Werle.

With music by Damon Intrabartolo, book and lyrics by Jon Hartmere, and musical supervision and additional songs by Lynne Shankel and Jon Hartmere, New York audiences will soon discover why BARE has amassed a passionate international fan base, received over one hundred productions worldwide, and is poised to be this season's musical theater event.
