“Bare” has music by Damon Intrabartolo and book and lyrics by Jon Hartmere, with additional songs by Hartmere and Lynne Shankel. Producing team for the new Gotham incarnation includes Randy Taradash, Paul Boskind and the producing and general management company he co-owns, Martian Entertainment, and Gregory Rae.
