BARE – THE MUSICAL
MUSIC BY DAMON INTRABARTOLO,
LYRICS BY JON HARTMERE JR
19 – 28 JANUARY
Back by popular demand for an extended season!
Pulsating, electric contemporary LGBT pop-rock musical BARE follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity and the future.
The show takes 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.
