Bare: A Pop Opera opens February 29th
Once in our lives, we have all met at least one person who is afraid to come out of the closet. He may be that jock in school adored by screaming girls or that quiet officemate of yours who is always careful of how he speaks and acts. This may be that famous actor or even a cousin who is so obvious anyway you'd want to tell him he doesn't need to come out anymore since everybody has pretty much guessed that he is gay anyway. This could even be your godfather who has a wife and kids but secretly meets up with a lover or that hungry bottom you met last week that dutifully goes home to his wife after showing up on a booty call at 3 in the morning while he is on a supposed conference in the city.
Most of us have not only heard of these stories, we have lived it. And while it is easy to judge as an outsider and tell someone to just come out of the closet, accepting who you are and acceptance by society usually take a different route.
Bare tells us the story of Peter and Jason, two high school boys that fell in love in a Catholic boarding school. It tells us of their journey to self discovery and the pain they had to endure under the scrutiny of a bigoted society.
Bare features Jaime Barcelon (The Little Mermaid/Next to Normal) and Bibo Reyes who will be reprising the role of Peter from the 2009 production. Film and theater actress Ana Abad-Santos directs (Hamlet, Bare 2009).
Bare is set to open on February 29, 2012, 8PM at Teatrino located at the Promenade in Greenhills. Succeeding play dates are set on March 1-3 and March 7-10.
