The globally acclaimed musical, bare, will ignite New World Stages (NYC) in an all new production beginning this November. Set in a co-ed Catholic boarding school, bare explores the subject of teens exposed to the issues of identity, sexuality and religion. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling rock score, the musical demonstrates how today's generation is forced to navigate, for the first time, the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood and how far they will go to keep their world intact.
This emotionally charged, re-imagined production is led by internationally renowned director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz, Carrie) with Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall ("So You Think You Can Dance") and Tony Award-winning set designer Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher), featuring music by Damon Intrabartolo with book and lyrics by Jon Hartmere.
