This will not be the revised incarnation of the musical that was recently seen Off-Broadway; the Los Angeles revival will preserve the authors' original vision featuring the music of Damon Intrabartolo with book and lyrics by Jon Hartmere.
bare is produced for glory|struck by Topher Rhys and Jamie Lee Barnard, who recently brought the wildly successful concert-engagement of Spring Awakening to Los Angeles in support of Love is Louder, and previously developed Glory Days in Concert and the 2009 bare workshop to benefit It Gets Better and The Trevor Project, respectively.
The rock-infused presentation will be directed by noted Southern California director Calvin Remsberg (Sweeney Todd, TITANIC, Parade, Sunday in the Park with George, Urinetown, Into the Woods; the LA premieres of Glory Days and F*cking Men), with musical direction and music production by Elmo Zapp (Spring Awakening in Concert).
Jen Oundjian, whose work has been seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, America's Got Talent, and Dancing with the Stars, choreographs the show.
Other key team members include associate musical director Andrew Orbison, associate music production by Alex Seller, and co-producers Stephanie Lazard and Elmo Zapp.
With timeless themes of acceptance, tolerance and equality, the book and music of bare are increasingly relevant today. "The message of the show is to find and be yourself and the struggle that we all go through to present our authentic self to the world," describes author Jon Hartmere.
