Story

Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

Critics' Reviews

"Thrilling! This emotionally rich revival delivers what Broadway otherwise hasn't felt this season: intense, unadulturated job. Cuddly, sweet, madcap and ecstatic, the young cast members are tearing down the house, and any theatergoer with a pulse will find it hard to resist their invitation to join the demolition crew."

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

"Triumphant, glorious and breathtaking! Hair is a musical for the ages because it's a musical for the now.""

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from New York Post
