The Broadway production of Hair at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre closed June 27, 2010. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

A plot summary (courtesy of the production): "Hair" depicts the the birth of a cultural movement in the 60's and 70's that changed America forever....following a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War.

To its credit, the material still packs a punch, both as social commentary and challenging theater. And with a big, talented, high-energy cast (mostly holdovers from the Public Theater's highly-acclaimed 2008 production in Central Park) and a score that includes "Let the Sunshine In," "Aquarius," and "Good Morning Starshine," a few goose bump moments are almost a certainty.

Is this a show for you? Well, if you are even a bit prudish (less well-known musical numbers include "Sodomy" and "Hashish"), or if you have an aversion to in-your-face audience participation (and in this production, lord only knows what might be in your face), the answer is a probably no. If, on the other hand, you've always wanted to experience the thrill of singing and dancing on a Broadway stage (and you think you might be able to claw your way to the front for the curtain-call lovefest), the answer may be yes.

The official word on suitability: The production contains scenes that briefly depict profanity, nudity, simulated sex acts and simulated drug use. Accordingly, it may not be appropriate for young theatergoers under the age of 12. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
