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

Another very good offering from ArtsWest, "Next Fall" is a rather bittersweet exploration of love, loss, regret and the human soul. Although there were times that the chemistry between the "Adam" and "Luke" seemed a little questionable (especially where the bouts of playfulness seemed not spontaneous, but merely unmotivated), Christopher Zinovitch's portrayal of brave grief was convincing enough to bring quiet tears to the eyes of several audience members...myself included. Overall, it was a thought-provoking and emotion-moving play that likely has something to resonate with almost everyone, well-executed.
Next Fall is playwright Geoffrey Nauffts’ first theatrical play, after several years of acting, directing and writing for theatre, film and television. A writer for the long-running ABC hit series, Brothers and Sisters, Nauffts is currently collaborating with Elton John on a score for Showstopper, a screenplay written for Ben Stiller’s production company.
The ArtsWest cast includes Christopher Zinovitch (Adam), David Elwyn Traylor (Luke), Kate Witt (Holly), John Wray (Butch), Patricia Haines-Ainsworth (Arlene), Daniel Stoltenberg (Brandon).
“Next Fall is a perfect show for a venue such as ArtsWest,” notes Artistic Director Christopher Zinovitch. “This is a very personal, tight-focus play, and the intimacy of our performance space will create an intense emotional experience for the audience. Silences will be deafening, the tension electric.”
