PHOTOS: A Sneak Preview Of Off-Broadway’s “Bare: The Musical”

Bare, the Off-Broadway musical coming to New York’s New World Stages, is a rock musical exploring issues of  identity, sexuality and religion as gay students Jason and Peter (actors Taylor Trensch and Jason Hite, above) try to maintain a clandestine romantic relationship at their Catholic boarding school.

With music by composer Damon Intrabartolo and lyricist Jon Hartmere, Bare debuted at L.A.’s Hudson Theatre more than a decade ago, and actually had a brief run in the Big Apple back in 2004. Since then it’s garnered a cult following that included Randy Taradash, Gregory Rae and Paul Boskind, who are producing the new production.

Check out Olivier-nominated director Stafford Arima and Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) putting actors Jason Hite, Taylor Trensch, Elizabeth Judd, Gerard Canonico, Jerold E. Solomon, Anthony Festa, Casey Garvin, Ariana Groover, Sara Kapner, Alice Lee, Megan Lewis, Justin Gregory Lopez, Alex Wyse, Barrett Wilbert Weed, and Missi Pyle through their paces.

Bare begins preview performances on November 19, with opening night on December 9, at New World Stages in New York.

      “Producing their new production”? Seriously?

      This looks more like a LIFETIME movie, meets off-Broadway meets LOGO.
