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. Hair’s loosely threaded story spins and dazzles like a kaleidoscope, establishing a communal bond with the audience through generation-defining songs. “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.
Split Stage Productions
If residents of Westmoreland County want to see a Broadway musical, they no longer have to tunnel to the famed street to do so. They can merely purchase tickets to seasons at Split Stage Productions, a local company that stages famed shows such as Hair and Avenue Q with area performers.
The artistic brains behind the operation are co-founders Rob Jessup and Nate Newell, both Western Pennsylvania transplants and theater veterans who were inspired by the region's need for thought-provoking, dynamic drama. "I think that the big thing is the risks that we're willing to take," Newell says when discussing what sets Split Stage apart. Those risks have paid off: a flagship production of Rent was, according to Jessup, "a success," and helped cement Split Stage's reputation as an up-and-coming company.
