The stars of the eagerly anticipated bare: a pop opera were out in full force at Therapy on Monday night to celebrate their Off-Broadway opening, and BroadwayWorld was there to capture the "bare" essentials.

The show's
 focus is the coming-of-age story of five high school seniors at a Catholic boarding school. Knowing their stay in this insular world is drawing to a close, each of them question where they are in their lives and what the future holds in store.

Answers are sought in the church confessional and in less formal venues including a stage, a rave and a well-locked dorm room.

After their opening night performance, all the angst was put on the back burner, as you can clearly see...
