Bare: A Pop Opera
Time Out says
Likely to appeal to 'Spring Awakening' fans, this sung-through pop musical is all about teen angst in a repressive boarding school, overseen by nuns. It follows two catholic schoolboys who fall in love with each other as they rehearse 'Romeo and Juliet', while their mates wrestle with an afterschool special's worth of issues (body image, drug use, sex and more) through the medium of catchy, rock and gospel-inspired pop songs.
'Bare: A Pop Opera' gets its London premiere at The Vaults after a run Off-Broadway. This production is directed by Julie Atherton, and stars Darragh Cowley and Daniel Mack Shand as its central pair of star cross'd lovers.
