Everyone’s heard of Hamilton, Rent, and even Hair. These are all smash-hit musicals that use modern-style music to tell poignant stories. Bare: A Pop Opera is also part of this tradition — in this case, a rock musical that tells the story of two young gay men coming of age at a Catholic boarding school. Throughout the story, the characters wrestle with issues of sexuality, identity, and beyond. For fans of contemporary musicals or those interested in LGBTQ issues, this one’s a must-see.
