The rock musical that sparked a revolution and ignited a generation — “Hair” — is back! All the original hits and new songs rediscovered from the original production – all played live by The Tribe.
The show takes place Sunday, May 11 at 4 p.m. at the Bromeley Family Theater, Blaisdell Hall,
University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, Bradford, Pa.
Although initially performed in 1967, the universal themes of individuality, experimentation and acceptance in the face of oppression are just as resonant today. All the chart-topping songs that became anthems of counter-culture and the sexual revolution are back including “Aquarius,” Let the Sun Shine in,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and “Easy to be Hard.”
Bold! Brash! Angry and defiant! This new production returns to its rebellious and provocative roots! Join the revolution — it’s the dawning of a new age!
Updated for 2014 by the original creator, James Rado, experience HAIR like never before!
James Rado commented on his collaboration on this latest version: “This new HAIR script is a well-oiled, finely-calibrated and a bit more expansive version, with subtle new twists of plot and character, some new jokes and funny lines, and the restoration of two songs not included in the recent Broadway version (Act 1: Dead End and Act II: Xanaplanetooch — this song was in the original 1967 Off-Broadway production, but didn’t make it in our move to Broadway). This production brings the show back to its origins. The changes in the script are largely based on the original material. A most exciting part of this process has been the discovery of a new aspect of Claude’s mystery. Something about his flights of fantasy — they are crucial to his story and his restlessness. This is the best version of the script that is out there now.”
