Are there multiple examples of the "modern day Romeo and Juliet story of two boys who fall in love at a Catholic high school" genre? Is this completely unrelated to R & J by J. Calarco?

Totally unrelated. R&J is Shakespeare's version, word for word, I believe, not a completely separate musical.

According to the Playbill obit (*) he'd been working on a new musical. A new LA production of bare will open Sep. 5.

Ugh, this is sad. I saw bare the 1st time it was in NYC, and it had real promise. You didn't link to my favorite number from that production, the "911, Emergency!" number sung by the Virgin Mary.

Oops! 911 Emergency! (Vassar)

The pictures on the "died" link are fantastic, everyone looks happy, and yet now they are so poignant. 39 ffs.
