Follow a group of politically active hippies as they try to make sense of their young lives in Hair, the American rock musical that provides a vivid, affectionate look at the flower children of the 1960s. The group bands together in a peace-loving tribe amidst the turmoil of the anti-Vietnam War movement while the music and culture of the era come to life on stage. Hair's unforgettable songs, like "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," "Easy To Be Hard" and "The Flesh Failures" (aka "Let the Sunshine In") went on to become anthems of the anti-war movement. The unbridled energy and infectious music will give you an electrifying look back into '60s hippie counterculture. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
" … a significant and intensely moving new work by a proven Broadway playwright. This is a play with enough daring to look at the polarities of war with a strong sense of the complexity of human limitations." —Chicago Tribune
A highly theatrical depiction of four German, gentile women struggling to survive through the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler. This Jefferson-nominated Best Play of 2006 – based on actual interviews with women who navigated the landscape of fascism from the inside – received its New York debut in 2009, and will be directed by Artistic Director, Christopher Zinovitch.
“Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, there lived, on top of the mountain there – a mean old man . . .” Thus, our narrator, Ludmilla begins the story of three women: Gretchen, the working class girl who looks after an indolent father; Angelika who aspires to be a nurse; and Friederike, the daughter of an aristocratic family with a passion for the jazz clubs of Berlin – as they grow up under the new regime of Adolf Hitler. Each will face their own demons as they encounter the real demons of Fascism. This modern fairy tale is also populated by the Frau—an embodiment of Nazi power, who shifts from Schoolmistress, to a compromised clinician, to task master, to torturer.
All Through the Night_ features Cindy Bradder (Ludmilla), Colleen Carey (the Frau), Erin Stewart (Friederike), Jillian Vashro (Gretchen) and Kate Witt (Angelika).
