Refuge Theatre Project at Epsworth United Methodist Church bare
bare had its World Premiere at Los Angeles' Hudson Theatre in 2000 and its first New York production, a two-month run at the American Theatre of Actors, in 2004. An 11-song sampler of music from the show was offered to all patrons of that run, with a full studio album recorded and released in 2007. Those recordings plus the many regional productions of the musical since have led to its development of an intensely loyal audience over the years since its original New York and Los Angeles productions. A revised version, called Bare: the Musical with more spoken dialogue was produced off-Broadway in 2012-13. The Refuge production will be of the original "pop opera" version.
