Cast gets ‘Bare’ Off Broadway

Pyle on deck for rock musical

Missi Pyle and Alex Wyse (“Lysistrata Jones”) are among the thesps tapped to appear in the New York return of “Bare,” the retooled rock tuner that opens in a commercial Off Broadway production this fall.

Pyle (“The Artist,” “Galaxy Quest”), who played a stint in the 2008 revival of “Boeing-Boeing,” will portray a teacher/nun in the story about the turbulent lives of students at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. Taylor Trensch (“Wicked”), Jason Hite amd Elizabeth Judd (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) also are among the performers signed on for the production.

Musical by composer Damon Intrabartolo and book writer-lyricist Jon Hartmere (with additional tunes by Hartmere and Lynn Shankel) initially bowed in L.A. in 2000 prior to a 2004 stint Off Broadway, with both stagings directed by Kristin Hanggi (“Rock of Ages”). The musical has since been seen, in subsequent versions, in a wide number of regional and international markets.

New Off Broadway production, helmed by Stafford Arima (“Carrie”) and choreographed by Travis Wall (“So You Think You Can Dance”), has a creative team that also includes Donyale Werle (sets), Tristan Raines (costumes), Howell Binkley (lights) and Keith Caggiano (sound).

Produced by Randy Taradash, Paul Boskind and Martian Entertainment and Gregory Rae, “Bare” begins previews Nov. 19 at New World Stages ahead of a Dec. 9 opening.
