Donyale Werle, who just picked up a Tony for her work in “Peter and the Starcatcher,” is onboard to design the set, with further members of the creative team still to be set.

Musical, about a group of teens wrestling with growing up at a coed Catholic boarding school, preemed at L.A.’s Hudson Theater in 2000 and also was seen in a 2004 Off Broadway stint helmed by Kristin Hanggi (“Rock of Ages”). Title also has been seen in separate productions around the world.

“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.

“Bare” begins previews Nov. 19 ahead of a Dec. 9 opening night at New World Stages. Casting remains to be locked in.
