In the first rock musical to hit Broadway, a group of hippie youth search for meaning amidst the Civil Rights movement, protests against the Vietnam War, drug experimentation and the sexual revolution - all set to the infectiously energetic rock beat of such songs as "Aquarius," "Good Morning, Starshine," "Hair," "I Got Life" and "Let The Sun Shine." Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, this 1968 tribal love rock musical examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
A seven-piece band features music director Matthew McNeill on piano, John Mayes-Barron on electric guitar, Colin Mai on bass, Thad Wallus on drums, Jakobie Kindle and Malik Sylvester on trumpet, and Austin Wells on reeds.
Directed by Ryan Bowie, “HAIR” was written by Gerome Ragni and James Rado with music by Galt MacDermot. The musical was produced by Michael Butler.
“HAIR” is intended for mature audiences only. This production also utilizes pulsating lighting effects.
“HAIR” is presented by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., and is produced in part by Barbara & Larry Goolsby. Additional funding support has been provided by Bradley & Lisa Martin.
