Excellent production, fantastically talented cast, funny, sweet, touching and transporting. What more could you ask for from theater? If you lived in the 60's or want to get a feel for what it was like to be a hippy, then this is a must see.

All the singers had wonderful voices. Furthermore, I was impressed with the quality of talent that seemed to surprise me at every turn. I especially loved the guy who dressed as a woman and sang in a lilting voice. Thanks for entertaining me after...continued

I'd seen Hair once before. I enjoyed hearing not-my-king-of-songs and the wild movements that went with them.

Description

Don’t cut your hair!

Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a rock musical with a book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. A product of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. The musical’s profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its treatment of sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and its nude scene caused much comment and controversy. The musical broke new ground in musical theater by defining the genre of “rock musical,” using a racially integrated cast, and inviting the audience onstage for a “Be-In” finale.
