With regards to the set - it looks like it is made up of stills from youtube videos - possibly from the 'It Gets Better' campaign, which would make sense given the themes of the show.

It's not from YouTube or It Gets Better videos (thankfully). They had people send in Instagram photos to be included in the set design. Seeing as how there are millions of them I guess the contest wasn't the only source they used.

@EricMontreal22 If you order the show from Theatrical Rights you can have the original show. They let you keep the material when they send it out. I own it as well as a couple of other friends. I will never ever do this new production they are putting together. It's not Bare and never will be.

I really hate this was the show I was coming to NYC to see and now it's the one I am dreading seeing. If I had not already bought tickets I would not be going.

Michael, you evidentally have an interest in the show. This was a press event without full lighting and staging. Go see the entire show andw then judge it. I feel that is what people should do who are already slamming it. I am not happy about some of the changes but I am going to see the show.

Also, a bit more as to why Damon is not involved, I know a while ago he felt he worked on/with the show for long enough and needed to let it go.

Makes one glad that other writers haven't taken the same line - imagine South Pacific by Bob Merrill; Richard Rodgers says in Variety, "Oscar and I felt that we had spent more than enough time on this thing; let Bob take a whack at it."

New, I understand what you are saying but the original version is still out there. I think he had just been with it so long that he felt he did al he could with it.

I've just never heard of a living writer abandoning a show they worked on for years to someone who'll keep some of his material and change anything else they like.

Many properties have changed hands entirely (Muscle originally by Sondheim, then by Finn, for example), but this sort of hybrid seems new.

Is it comparable to the revised Charlie Brown? Gesner was still alive (but was he in poor health?) and didn't object to the inferior new material and the awful re-writing of his original material.

At this point, this should hardly even be considered a revival. It's not the same show. What was formerly Bare: A Pop Opera is now Bare The Musical.

New, with all due respect, well now you nave heard of one!

A bit of inside info...I found out that due to Sandy, they lost time with load in, tech and this press event. Dates were set that they had to adhere to. So, not to defend them, but they had expected to have more time to prepare for the event.

A new interview/article was released today confirming the cutting of "Wedding Bells", "Wonderland" and "Rolling" - Now I am completely okay with "Rolling" getting cut. They have decided to cut the rave scene completely, which it was a little dated so if it is modernized correctly it could be okay. I enjoyed "Wonderland" but for selfish reasons. I am really curious as to what is left in this story.

Also, if you didn't know the show is now titled "Bare: The Musical" instead of "Bare: A Pop Opera" - I guess this is due to the amounts of dialogue they are adding in.

Rolling was dated even when the musical first ran off-Broadway, so I'm fine with its cutting. The thing is, so much of the press pics really still look dated--

Yes, Rolling was very dated...

I don't get all the changes. I have no hope for this new version. I love the 2004 NYC version. Some of the changes made for the "Concept Album" (i.e. "Dream a dream/Then dash another") make me cringe!

YAY! Now I know what to do for my bedroom design. Polaroids and instagram pics of my friends. I figured it would be cheap, easy to do and I could probably do it in about 27 minutes.

A little worried...

I love Bare, but the preview makes me nervous.
