Bare, the worldwide coming-of-age rock musical phenomenon, and one the most significant pieces of contemporary queer musical theatre, follows a group of high school renegades at a Catholic co-ed boarding school as they wrestle with their sexuality, their religion, and ultimately their identity. With deep honesty, alarming cultural relevance, and a gritty, alt-rock-pop score reminiscent of RENT and Spring Awakening, Bare delivers one of the most powerful and gripping theatrical experiences of this generation — an introspective into the fragility of our "bare" humanity.

Please note that Bare explores mature themes, contains adult language, partial nudity, sexual content and simulated violence. Bare may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.


Book by Jon Hartmere and Damon Intrabartolo. Music by Damon Intrabartolo. Lyrics by Jon Hartmere. Directed by Sean Elias✝︎. Stage Management provided by River Hansen✝︎.

critical acclaim / reviews

“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.” - Variety

“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.” – Broadway World

“In an age when high school jocks regularly come out of the closet and same-sex couples are named to the homecoming court, we'd like to think that the pressure of being a gay teen isn't terrible enough to merit an Off-Broadway musical anymore; but we would be wrong. The issues addressed in Bare are very real…” - Theatre Mania
