Description: Book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado; Music by Galt MacDermot. HAIR, the American tribal love-rock musical that popularized the spirit of the 1960s, awakens from its bell-bottomed, tie-dyed time capsule to bring its message of freedom, peace and love to the new millennium. Not a nostalgic flashback to the way it was, HAIR is about tuning in and on to now. Introduced on Broadway in 1968, HAIR became a symbol of the cultural revolution that changed the rules. By bringing rock music and the hippie movement on stage in a psychedelic sit-in, HAIR captured the experimental atmosphere of the times. The show has a strong effect on everyone, and acts as a bridge between generations and viewpoints. What looks like incredible chaos is actually organized chaos. Phenomenal musical numbers include Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, I Believe in Love, Hair, I Got Life, Easy To Be Hard, What a Piece of Work Is Man. This show has a vitality, a timelessness, and a meaning that outlives the late 1960s and early 1970s in America.
