Stage and screen actors Payson Lewis (NBC's "The Sing Off", "Victorious"), Jonah Platt ("The Office") and Lindsay Pearce ("Glee,") star in the Los Angeles return of the Intrabartolo-Hartmere pop opera bare , opening September 6.

Stephanie Andersen and John Griffin, who starred as Sister Chantelle and Jason, respectively, in the original 2000 L.A. production return to the show. Andersen reprises the role of Sister Chantelle, which she also recorded on the 2007 studio album, and Griffin plays the Priest.

The cast also includes Lewis (NBC's "The Sing Off," "Victorious") as Peter, Platt ("The Office") as Jason, Pearce ("Glee," "The Glee Project") as Ivy, Katie Stevens ("American Idol"), Nathan Parrett (NBC's "The Voice"), Caitlin Ary, Kelsey Hainlen, Casey Hayden, Christopher Higgins, Reesa Ishiyama, Harrison Meloeny, Katherine Washington and Alissa-Nicole Koblentz.  

A story of discovery, acceptance and love, bare, according to glory|struck, "centers on the clandestine relationship between two roommates: charismatic, golden-boy Jason and sensitive, soulful Peter. As the pair navigates adolescence, we see the consequences of secrecy unravel though their eyes and those around them: Nadia, Jason's sardonic twin sister, a hard-edged outsider; the attention-prone Ivy, who shamelessly pursues her obsession with Jason; and forlorn Matt, whose affections for Ivy are repeatedly rebuffed."

Here's a look at the L.A. Production:
