"...it's about the rise and fall of pop music..."

I can't imagine what that could possible mean.

I utterly loathed bare as banal, self-indulgent, adolescent nonsense, so I'd rather not explore the website for this one...

Chill out, newintown. You may not have liked bare, but please at least respect the OP's dedication to a composer and a director who have both proven tirelessly over the years their extraordinary range, adaptability, and have established themselves as critical, if imperfect, fixtures with the world of legitimate professional theater.

They are also my favorites. There really is no one better suited to their crafts than Damon Intrabartolo and Anthony J. Cantalupo.

The rise and fall of pop music? What does that even mean? Last I checed, Justin Bieber still has screaming crying tween fans and American Idol is still on the air.

Even though the OP is a complete and utter shill?

That's your opinion. Take a note from your playbook and respect mine - I don't think they've established much of anything.

Expressing a divergent opinion from the OP is not "disrespect," it's disagreeing. If you're too sensitive to see that simple fact, then you're the one who needs to "chill out."

I was hoping this was going to be the Pepto Bismal story!

I actually like bare, especially the music. I'd love to hear something from this new show, but since there is nothing on that lame website, no dice. Why bother posting a link to a website with no information?

So it's set both in the past (the rise of pop music) and way into the future (the fall of pop music). Is there any part of about today?

Well, one should hope the writing of the show itself is better than the writing on their website:

PLOP is a highly stylized, slickly executed, and entirely fictional, story of the rise and fall of pop- music. PLOP is best described as a ¯love letter¯ to an era when boy-bands and all-American school girl solo acts reigned supreme on the ¯Billboard charts.¯ PLOP is not a satire, it is a riotously funny and piercingly dramatic, homage to the last iconic era of the record industry that the world will ever know. PLOP takes place in the mid to late 90¯s and is a period piece.

I don't care for shills, but at least this is about a musical.

And although newintown is our resident misanthrope I share his opinion of bare.

I'm also on board with growl though in wishing the OP luck with his or her endeavor. I always try to be supportive of new writers.

Misanthrope?!? I LOVE people!

It's rotten, stupid, witless, cliché, derivative shows that I can't stand...

Lol newintown. Don't be offended.

I'm sure you do love people, but like it or not you're definitely lovably cranky on these boards. Nothing wrong with that, you just have a colorful way of expressing yourself in this type of forum.

The only real problem I have with Bare is that the score sounds too derivative of Rent.
