Paul Taylor-Mills' European premiere production of the boarding school-set musical will have a run at Greenwich Theatre this autumn

Bare at the Union Theatre

'Cult rock musical' Bare will transfer to Greenwich Theatre for a limited run from 9 to 27 October 2013 following its European premiere at the Union Theatre in April.

The show is billed as "the electrifying story of a group of students navigating their way through a journey of teenage self-discovery, wrestling with identity, sexuality, and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school".

It was first staged at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles in 2000, before opening Off-Broadway at the American Theatre of Actors in 2004. Bare has since received over 100 productions in cities all over the world including Toronto, Sydney, and returning to New York at New World Stages in 2012.

Bare is directed by Paul Taylor-Mills, whose credits include Off-West End productions of Little Shop of Horrors, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Steel Pier and Rent.

Bare has music by Damon Intrabartolo, lyrics by John Hartmere and a book by Intrabartolo and Hartmere. It features choreography by Racky Plews, design by David Shields and casting by Will Burton.

Casting for the Greenwich run will be announced shortly.
