Musical Bare Receives Boston-Area Premiere July 25-August 2
F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company announces the Boston Premiere of Bare, a musical by Damon Intrabartolo and John Hartmere. Bare opens on Friday, July 25 and plays through Saturday, August 2.
“We love to be able to present Boston Premieres,” says F.U.D.G.E. President and Bare Director, Joe DeMita. “After the success of both I Sing, and I Love You Because, it is clear that Boston audiences love seeing new productions.” DeMita and the F.U.D.G.E. crew love to create productions that have not been seen in the Boston area. Audiences have no pre-conceived notions of what the show “should” look like or “should” feel like giving the company a lot of enjoyed artistic freedom.
DeMita also mentions several important issues that Bare addresses – homosexuality and the catholic church, teen pregnancy, drug use, and suicide. The show explores the pains and pleasures of five high school seniors at a co-ed Catholic boarding school as they struggle to grow up in these complicated, conflicted, contemporary times. Each of them question where they are in their lives. Answers are sought in the church confessional and in less formal venues including a stage, a rave, and a well-locked dorm room.
“These issues are all prevalent in today’s society, and Bare addresses them in a poignant and thought-provoking way. Bare is a very nice close to a season that did not deal with too much heavy material!” The F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company, Inc.’s production of Bare features Trevor Croft, Samuel Moscoso, Ashley Yarnell, Keri-Ann Maguire and Andrew Mackin.
Bare will be performed at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA. For further information visit: www.fudgetheatre.com.
