Because the July 12 concert at Joe's Pub sold out so quickly, the cast of the new musical will also perform at the intimate cabaret July 30. Show time for both performances is 7 PM. Among those taking part in the concerts, which benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, are Michael Arden, John Hill, Jenna Leigh Green, Natalie Joy Johnson, Aaron Lohr, Adam Flemming, Kaitlin Hopkins, Jim Price and Mike Cannon. Kristin Hanggi and Damon Intrabartolo will direct the concerts, which feature the Bare band with musical direction by Jesse Vargas.
Bare features a book by Jon Hartmere Jr. and Damon Intrabartolo, music by Intrabartolo and lyrics by Hartmere. The musical, which recently ended its run at the American Theatre of Actors, explores the lives of five high school students at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. Bare will reopen Sept. 21 at another Off-Broadway venue.
Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 239-6200; those wishing to dine before the show should make reservations at (212) 539-8778.
