Set in a private Catholic high school, BARE is a story about Jason and Peter, two gay high school students. The musical mainly elaborates on their struggles and deals with issues such as coming out, college, pregnancy, drugs and basically anything a teen can go through. As they struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, they seek answers from their Church, their friends, and ultimately, from within themselves. Its rich, vibrant score draws on many styles of contemporary music.
BARE received its world premiere staging at the Hudson Mainstage Theater,
Hollywood, California on October 14, 2000.
“As the audience made their way toward the exit, I could see some people wipe tears from their face…the music was moving. It came to me that once again, BARE had managed to not only ‘touch my soul’ but the audience’s heart.”– Jimin Lee, Broadway World
“A work of love and stunning beauty.”– Lynn Beaver, Broadway World
“The team of Jon Hartmere Jr. and Damon Intrabartolo have wrought a magnificent, totally original contemporary musical extravaganza that explores the schism between youthful passion and theological dogma.”
– Julio Martinez, Variety
