Hair

“It was a show about now when we did it,” said Hair co-creator James Rado in 2008. “Now it’s a show about then—but it’s still about now.” Although initially performed in 1967, the rock musical’s universal themes of individuality, experimentation, and acceptance in the face of oppression are just as resonant today. It also doesn’t hurt that Rado has returned to update the script for 2014 with new and previously unreleased songs from the original production.

Hair follows a group of free spirits known as The Tribe, a diverse clan of young Americans on a quest for peace, love, and car keys amid the turbulent 1960s and the looming draft of the Vietnam War. Upon its inception, the show stirred up controversy for its portrayal of integration and free love, particularly the harmonious nude scene at the end of Act 1. But it since has gone on to be praised for these very things, and the tour brings the positive message of the Broadway revival to audiences throughout the country.

Hair’s loosely threaded story spins and dazzles like a kaleidoscope, establishing a communal bond with the audience through generation-defining songs backed by a live band onstage. “Aquarius” delivers astrological predictions with acid rock and twinkling strings before the show’s title track revels in unkempt freedom and its connection to nature. “A nest for birds, there ain’t no words for the beauty, the splendour, the wonder of my hair,” sing the performers, who thrash and sway through freewheeling choreography that Ben Brantley of the New York Times lauded for looking “as if it’s being invented on the spot.”

Hair is suggested for a mature audience because of nudity, and parental discretion is advised.
