‘Bare’ wit­ness

GA Voice - - Arts Reviews Lgbt Atlanta Entertainment - By JIM FARMER

Next week, New­nan Theatre Com­pany opens what is bound to be a high-pro­file pro­duc­tion—the tune-filled “bare: A Pop Opera.” With a book by Jon Hart­mere Jr. and Da­mon In­tra­bar­tolo, mu­sic by In­tra­bar­tolo and lyrics by Hart­mere, it tells the story of a group of high school se­niors at a Catholic board­ing school dis­cov­er­ing their per­sonal iden­ti­ties and sex­u­al­ity, in­clud­ing two gay char­ac­ters in love with each other. A num­ber of out ac­tors are in the cast, in­clud­ing lead Ja­cob Dem­low. We caught up with out direc­tor/chore­og­ra­pher Paul Con­roy to dis­cuss the show, which will fea­ture a spe­cial event on open­ing night: GLAAD will visit as part of its South­ern Sto­ries sum­mer tour and con­duct a Q and A with the cast.

Tell us about “bare.”
