Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

This is a show you just have to experience from beginning to the very end. You’ll know what I mean when you see it! Loved it on Broadway when it first came out and loved it once again here in LA! I will certainly be seeing it again. There's something about that time that fascinates me, and I even wished that I even grew up in that era! Interesting that even after 40 years since the story took place, that we are still having the same issues now.
I was actually quite impressed with the cast and their singing. They were able to deliver, and I wasn't disappointed at all. I was so jealous of all of their hair, even Bergers! HAHA! I love the music, the message this show stands by, and how relaxed and unconventional the production is. Some say the choreography is mediocre or shouldn’t even be considered as dancing, but I don't think this show is meant to be tightly choreographed and structured with a lot of technique. I think that would totally contradict to what that era was really all about. True, there is only one set, but I personally don't think that matters. The tribe, their stories, the open spirit and energy, and the music kept it interesting enough especially when they use more than just the stage!
However, I have to warn you, this is a show with mature adult content. I don’t think it’s bad and believe me, there is worse out there! Just take it as is, open your mind, and enjoy the ride! The more you get into it, the more fun you’ll have at this show!!

I was very disappointed. Yes, the cast is energetic and they have great voices and the music still holds up. However, the production value was so low I thought it felt like a High School production. In addition, there really is no story and...continued

Hair tells the story of a group of young-adult friends choosing to speak up and sing out in celebration of love, life and freedom. The first great rock musical, it has some of the most rousing and soulful songs ever written for the stage, including “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Easy to be Hard,” “Good Morning Starshine,” “Aquarius” and the infectious title song, “Hair.”
