Hair

 


Running since March 2009
The Tony-winning revival of the revolutionary 'tribal love-rock musical,' which had audiences (and critics) dancing in the aisles at the Hirshfeld, is back on Broadway for a limited summer run at the St. James.
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Closes September 10th.


The Broadway production of Hair closed September 10, 2011. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

This show was mounted in 2008 as an outdoor production in Central Park and then re-mounted for Broadway in 2009, where it ran for 15 months. The 2011 Broadway run features a touring production and cast.

According to press notes, the show is a "celebration of the 1960s and the counter-culture which heralded a lifestyle of peace, love, and understanding as well as sex, drugs and rock and roll. 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, "Hair" depicts the the birth of a cultural movement that changed America forever."

Surprisingly, the material still packs quite a punch, both as social commentary and challenging theater. And with a big, energetic cast, 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.

According to the producers, "while many parents have found this show suitable and engaging for young adults (13 and older), parental discretion is advised. There is a dimly lit 20-second scene with nudity that is non-sexual in nature." On the other hand, a few parents have written to tell us they feel the show is completely inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18. Click to read audience reviews from the 2009 Broadway run.
