Award-winning producers Randy Taradash, Paul Boskind and Martian Entertainment, and Gregory Rae are proud to present the Off-Broadway musical BARE. When your true love is your deepest secret. When your heart is so full that your head clouds. When you've let your self-image be a group project. How much do you share—and with who? BARE is an exhilarating new rock musical that follows a group of teens trying to navigate the tightrope to adulthood over the minefield of high school. Along with their teachers, they wrestle with issues of identity, sexuality, religion and love. Both deeply moving and heartwarmingly humorous, BARE is for anyone who's ever felt locked out trying to fit in.
BARE began previews Off-Broadway at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) on Monday, November 19, 2012. Opening Night was Sunday, December 9, 2012.
Tony® Award-winner Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) is the scenic designer. Additional design team and complete casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
The company features Jason Hite (Jason), Taylor Trensch (Peter) and Elizabeth Judd (Ivy), with Gerard Canonico (Matt), Jerold E.
