HAIR is the original rock musical! With book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot, the iconic production won a Grammy for Best Score from an Original Cast Album in 1969, then 40 years later its 2009 revival won both the Tony and the Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

HAIR tells the story of Vietnam-era youths in New York City’s East Village who band together as a Tribe. They are a New York contingent of flower children. They question authority and the society in which they live, as well as the war in Asia. They seek to find a new way, they yearn to change the world. The Tribe awkwardly but exuberantly creates their own rites of passage through the confusion around them. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience, HAIR illustrates the ’60s generation’s search for meaning through various “be-ins,” “love-ins” and protests.

HAIR’s world debut was Off-Broadway in New York City in October 1967, on the heels of the Summer of Love. One of the first shows to move from off- to on-Broadway and the first show with a truly integrated cast, HAIR sent many of its songs to popular radio where they became Top 10 hits. While the show continued to be popular in theatrical forums over the years, 40 years later, it returned to Broadway, prompting Time magazine to write: “Hair… has been reinvigorated and reclaimed as one of the great milestones in musical-theatre history. … Today Hair seems, if anything, more daring than ever.”
