Hair - Book & Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado Music by Galt McDermot
April 30-May 17, 2015
Hair:: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical. A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. The musical's profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its treatment of sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and its nude scene caused much comment and controversy.
Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society.
Several of the songs from its score became Top 10 hits, and a feature film adaptation was released in 1979.
