Choreographer Travis Wall and the team of “Bare The Musical,” and representatives from the Tyler Clementi Foundation and Athlete Ally talk about bullying and homophobia in this video filmed during their NoH8 Campaign photo shoot.
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.
This emotionally charged, reimagined production is led by internationally renowned director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz, Carrie) with Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Tony Award®- winning set designer Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher),featuring music by Damon Intrabartolo and book & lyrics by Jon Hartmere.
Yesterday, on Spirit Day, GLAAD noted that the “cast of the new Off-Broadway musical BARE went purple today to celebrate Spirit Day and they went a step further with a video talking about the importance of taking a stand against bullying, supporting LGBT youth and celebrating differences.”
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.
