After a successful run at the Depot Theatre last month, Bare – The Musical has transferred to the New Theatre.
“This pulsating, electric contemporary LGBT pop-rock musical follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity and the future. The show will take audiences on an emotional musical journey. Peter and Jason have fallen in love, but they struggle with the fears of revealing their true selves to such an unforgiving world. With a unique sung-through pop score, heart-pounding lyrics and a cast of bright young characters, BARE rings with the sounds of youthful repression and revolt. BARE is a provocative, fresh and utterly honest look at the dangers of baring your soul … and the consequences of continuing to hide.”
Music by Damon Intrabartolo, Lyrics by Jon Hartmere, Jr., Directed and Choreographed by Hannah Barn via Supply Evolution
