HAIR in Concert at Waterfront Playhouse

Fri Nov 22, 2019 - Mon Nov 25, 2019

By Gerome Ragni and James Rado with music by Galt MacDermot
The international musical hit that changed the sound and the face of the Broadway musical.

Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the late 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. The musical broke new ground in musical theatre by defining the genre of “rock musical”, using a racially integrated cast, and inviting the audience onstage for a “Be-In” finale.
