Bare: A Staged Concert

Music by Damon Intrabartolo
Lyrics by Jon Hartmere
Book by Hartmere and Intrabartolo

MAR. 6-8
@WESTCO CAFÉ

A pulsating, electric contemporary rock musical, bare follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity, and the future. Peter and Jason have fallen in love with each other, but Jason -- a popular athlete -- fears being discovered to be gay. Unpopular Nadia, Jason’s sister, is contemptuous of Ivy, a beautiful girl with a questionable reputation. As the group attempts to put up a production of Romeo and Juliet, tensions flare, self-doubt simmers, and God’s path seems more difficult to find than ever. bare rings with the sounds of youthful repression and revolt. With a unique sung-through pop score, heart-pounding lyrics, and a cast of bright young characters, bare is a provocative and utterly honest look at the dangers of baring your soul, and the consequences of continuing to hide.

Trigger warnings: Strong language, homophobia, suicide, body dysmorphia, sexual intimacy, pregnancy. Please be advised that we will use strobe lights in this production.
