Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious

Don't see it if You need to hear all the words (staging was cool but many words were lost); teen angst isn't your thing; you don't like the dying gays trope

Great staging, Intense, Ambitious, Immersive

See it if you want to have a moving evening of theater with this immersive staging of the tragedy of the students in a co-ed Catholic boarding school.

Don't see it if It’s got gay (and straight) themes, drug use, adult language, and some sharp criticism of the Catholic Church & the actors get pretty close.

Wanted to like it, Close, but a miss, Ambitious

See it if you love "BARE" and would like to "see" and "hear" a sight-specific staging of the show.

Don't see it if you want a refreshing new take on the show or if don't know the show well. Being in a church, it's very hard to hear and see the actors. Read more
