Teen angst is currently in the spotlight on Broadway, with the bullying and suicidal themes of 'Dear Evan Hansen', the catty coterie in 'Mean Girls' and the outcasts of 'Be More Chill'. The American high-school has been used as a familiar setting for any number of musicals over the past 70 years to great success and BARE: A Pop Opera is a dark, rock musical that incorporates the stereotypical characters of the high school genre and their respective struggles with self-discovery, sexuality and acceptance.

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon announced the full cast and creative team for Vanity Fair, acclaimed playwright Kate Hamill's rollicking new stage adaptation of William Thackeray's classic 19th-century novel that pops with 21st-century spirit. Ambitious Becky Sharp may not have been born with wealth or status, but she's determined to attain both-at any cost. Armed with fierce wit and calculating charm, Becky forges her own path through London's high society, dealing herself into a game she was never invited to play. Displaying the celebrated audacity and verve that she brought to her adaptation of Sense & Sensibility, Hamill conjures an inventive and lively period drama that combines a fierce contemporary edge with the theatricality of Victorian Burlesque.
