What a great show! This is the third version of "Hair" I've seen in the last five years; each show has had it's stellar points and each has moved me. This talented, very attractive cast makes the huge Segerstrom Hall seem intimate (at least from...continued

Probably a bit too liberal, crude and free-spirited for the generally conservative Orange County crowd. It was interesting watching the patrons on either side of me judging which topics (such as drugs, unwed mothers, nudity, war protests, sexual...continued

Neither of us had seen "Hair" prior. About 1/2 the dialogue unintelligible to us and those around us at OC Arts Center (Tier 1) - poor sound? Although dated, it was good being reminded of the events and actions we were part of; however, if it had...continued

This is the second time I've seen this. I saw it two weeks ago with my husband at another venue. I loved it so much I was thrilled that it was going to be so close to where I live so I could see it again! So I invited my sister to go with me this...continued

My husband and I saw HAIR in the late sixties on a date. Now, older and wiser (read more experienced and less romantic), we found the profanity, the drugs, the nudity passe. BUT, the play's anti-war, racial, and environmental themes remain...continued

Overall the performance was enjoyable but the acoustics are not very good. From our Row Y center stage seats we could not understand most of the song lyrics because the music overpowered the singing. The solos were no problem.

Lots of fun! However, beware! This teacher, and mom, says DO NOT take your pre-teen or young teen to this production! All the tunes are very catchy and your kids will likely return to middle school singing about sodomy, felatio, masturbation, or...continued

Not my favorite play. And wasn't crazy about the seats either (row U near the side of the venue). But, for the money, it was fine. I just wasn't blown away.

Great set, good production. Curiously the director did not see fit to have the performers belt out the show's signature songs, which really "flattened" out the experience for us. I first saw it on Broadway when I was 18 and in other productions...continued

Good show! My first time using Goldstar for this venue. Our seats were in tier 1 row X. Hard to see much of anything - fortunatly I brought my binoculars and watched through them most of the time.

The overall premise is good, but the storyline, acting and some of the lead voices were just sub-par. Some musical numbers were well done, but overall the production left me yawning. The nudity was unnecessary and I felt punctuated the...continued

Give Me Some Kind Of Hair...Long Beautiful Hair! I have been looking forward to this play and we loved the performance. The tribe (company) did a fantastic job of reviving he 1960's. All the familiar tunes were done with so much energy, part...continued

Hair was wonderful - a 5 star event, except that the sound (as always in Segerstrom Hall) was not loud enough, making it difficult to hear some of the words. The story line and cast were awesome.

This was a boisterous and joyful production that was hampered by some technical production issues.

I would have rated this production 4 stars, but the poor sound engineering detracted from the performance. The band was so loud that you couldn't...continued

OUTSTANDING - moving, emotional, loved the tribe so much that not only did I see it in LA but 3 times in OC. I've lived through this time, and images are as relevant today as it was in the 60's, anti-war, racism, sad to see not much has changed. ...continued

Definitely a quaint piece of '60s pop culture, though rather dated. The music was fun and the spoken parts were fairly clear, but unless you know the words already, forget trying to understand them: Diction is not one of the chorus' long suits. ...continued

Good Show Loved the draft. At times was hard to understand what they were saying or singing sound quality wasn't the best.
