Rated 5.0

Bare is a pop-rock musical with a seriously broken heart. Set in a contemporary Catholic boarding school, Bare echoes Romeo and Juliet in a West Side Story way, but the weight of history, tradition and religious belief combine to separate the young lovers, both of whom happen to be male: Peter (Lucas Blair) and Jason (Ian Cuillity). Artistic Differences has assembled a cast made up of the best and brightest of the area’s young musical actors to create an energetic, funny and heart-rending musical that’s worth spending a hot summer night in a converted warehouse.
