Bare was produced by glory|struck Productions in September 2013 in a sold-out run at Downtown Los Angeles' Hayworth Theatre.
In this two-act concert, fans can expect to hear all of their favorites from bare, including "Role of a Lifetime," "Are You There?" "A Quiet Night at Home," "All Grown Up," "Bare," "Portrait of a Girl," "Epiphany," "No Voice," "You & I," "God Don't Make No Trash" and "Cross," among others.
According to press notes, "With pulsing rock music at its core, this provocative piece focuses on the coming-of-age of a group of high school seniors at a co-ed Catholic boarding school, each struggling to define themselves in the face of their relationships, sexuality and religion."
The reunion concert is produced for glory|struck Productions by Topher Rhys and Jamie Lee Barnard, with musical direction by Elmo Zapp and associate music production by Alex Seller. The Los Angeles revival of bare was directed by Calvin Remsberg, choreographed by Jen Oundjian, produced by Rhys and Jamie Lee Barnard and co-produced by Juliana Scott, Stephanie Lazard and Elmo Zapp.
Bare had its world premiere at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles, CA, where it began performances Oct. 14, 2000, and ran through Feb. 25, 2001. Following the Los Angeles production, bare began its run at the American Theatre of Actors (Chernuchin Theatre) March 25, 2004. It opened April 19, 2004, and played through May 27, 2004. Bare has since had more than 100 productions worldwide.
This is not the same incarnation of the musical that was recently seen at Off-Broadway's New World Stages; that version featured a revised libretto and additional material by Lynne Shankel (Altar Boyz, Cry-Baby).
