Photo Coverage: Taylor Trensch, Jason Hite and Elizabeth Judd to Lead BARE at New World Stages - Meet the Full Cast!

Award-winning producers Randy Taradash, Paul Boskind and Martian Entertainment, and Gregory Rae announced complete casting today for the original musical BARE. The company will feature Taylor Trensch (Peter), Jason Hite (Jason) and Elizabeth Judd (Ivy), with Gerard Canonico (Matt), Jerold E. Solomon (Father Mike), Barrett Wilbert Weed (Nadia) and Missi Pyle (Sister Joan). They will be joined by Casey Garvin (Zack), Ariana Groover (Vanessa), Sara Kapner (Madison), Nick Laughlin (Swing), Alice Lee (Diane), Megan Lewis (Swing), Justin Gregory Lopez (Beto), Michael Tacconi (Nick) and Alex Wyse (Alan).

BARE begins previews Off-Broadway at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) on Monday, November 19, 2012. Opening Night is set for Sunday, December 9, 2012.

“In working with Craig Burns at Telsey Casting, the creative team was so fortunate to see a staggering group of talented actors from across the country,” director Stafford Arima said. “I am thrilled and excited by this dynamic, fresh and exciting ensemble of BARE, who will bring to life this timely and timeless new musical.”

Featuring music by Damon Intrabartolo and book & lyrics by Jon Hartmere, BARE will be directed by Olivier® Award nominee Stafford Arima (Carrie, Altar Boyz) and choreographed by Emmy® Award nominee Travis Wall (“So You Think You Can Dance”). Additional songs are by Hartmere and Lynne Shankel (Altar Boyz, Cry-Baby, Company). Music supervision and arrangements are also by Lynne Shankel.

In addition to the previously announced Tony® Award-winner Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as the scenic designer, the BARE creative team will include costume design by Tristan Raines (Tribes, Murder in the First), lighting design by Tony® Award-winner Howell Binkley (Jersey Boys, Memphis), and sound design by Keith Caggiano (Soul of Shaolin).

Set in a co-ed Catholic boarding school, BARE explores the subject of teens exposed to the issues of identity, sexuality and religion. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling rock score, the musical demonstrates how today’s generation is forced to navigate, for the first time, the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood and how far they will go to keep their world intact.

BARE had its world premiere at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles, CA, where it began performances on October 14, 2000 and ran through February 25, 2001. Following the Los Angeles production, BARE began its run at the American Theatre of Actors (Chernuchin Theatre) on March 25, 2004. It opened April 19, 2004 and played through May 27, 2004. BARE has since had more than 100 productions worldwide.
