Bare now playing at New World Stages has everything a high school sex romp romcom needs to succeed; a slutty girl with a mysterious past, a hilariously perky asian, a teacher who turns out to be a great cabaret performer in a drug-induced song and dance number staring the Virgin Mary. Except its about a secret gay romance so it's a tragic drama instead. Are we bi-curious for this revival or are we totally gay for it?

Our favorite part is when Jackie Hoffman sneaks up on us!
We will try to post links to other reviews once they are posted!

Thanks!

Well if that's your fav part, doesn't say much about the production.
Why isn't Hoffman celebrating Chanuka?

she was the favorite part of the *review*!
it was strange/cool that the show opened on the first night of Chanukah

Sunday was the 2nd night of Channuka. Even if it WAS the first night, why is it strange? It's not considered that big of a holiday, pretty low on the religious front, actually. Gentiles assume that its a big deal like Christmas - not even close. Our big "High Holy Days" (official name) are Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and Rosh Hashana (New Year's).


If you were referring to JACKIE'S show opening on Channuka -- isn't it a channuka themed show? But even so, still not a big religious deal. As with most things Jewish, it's about family.

As gentile ourselves, we refer to you!

yes, Mama, her show is a Jewish version of A XMAS STORY.
I was kinda joking about her being there.

Back to BARE. Did they open on a Sunday to avoid reviews?
There's one bad one on ATC, though most reliable poster hate that guy.
And are A&A brothers or BFFs?

Bare:

I doubt if they get panned or receive glowing notices. We have a feeling they will be mixed. Not nearly as bad as Godspell; nor good as Spring Awaking. It is the kind of show that ATC would dismiss. (BTW: ATC said that we give show queens a bad name. LOL)

In regards to AA, a lot of people seem to ask those questions. :)

I was refering to Andrew Andrew's post, not yours Curtain -- I understood your comment.

And AA -- I think you meant that you "DEFER" to me. Unless you are going to continue to check in with me on all things Jewish. And that would not be wise -- I'm not a very good Jew.

Obviously you are WASPs. Jews aren't allowed to wear matching bowties.

"...Not nearly as bad as Godspell; nor good as Spring Awaking."

Hope so. What's frustrating is that the 2004 material is so much better than Spring Awakening.

Jakie's show is a take on A Christmas Carol not A Christmas Story.

The title card after the cameo made me laugh. The traffic behind you after act two made me fear for your safety.
