REVIEWS

Winning, propulsively pop-rock and burning with youthful passion, "Bare" moves, sings and plays with confidence, even if the musical, first seen in New York in 2004, seems to have lost some of its sociopolitical edge in the age of marriage equality and "Glee." A vibrantly executed revised version of a tuner that originally billed itself as a "pop opera," this new book-musical version is funnier, sexier and more infectiously satisfying than the original.

- Randy Gener, Variety CONTINUE READING
Director Stafford Arima, who covered another chapter of adolescent behavior in the short-lived musical “Carrie,” has assembled a talented cast that is uniformly strong. Barrett Wilbert Weed, as Jason’s druggy goth sister, stands out with her honeyed vocals. And Missi Pyle, brings down the house as the Virgin Mary in a glittery nightclub act. Pyle steals the show. 

- Joe Dziemianowicz, NY Daily News CONTINUE READING
The ever-sharp Missi Pyle (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) plays a smart, understanding nun and delivers handily during a hilarious scene where she also channels the Virgin Mary as a nightclub performer. Elizabeth Judd and Barrett Wilbert Weed are standouts in a show in which the boys get the more central roles. And while simplistic at times, the pop-rock score by Damon Intrabartolo (with additional songs by Lynne Shankel and lyricist Jon Hartmere) is mostly inspired.
