Hair is a rock musical about hippies in the midst of the 1960s counterculture. At the time of its debut, it was incredibly controversial for its edgy subject matter and its racially diverse cast. Some of its songs, such as "Age of Aquarius" and "Let The Sun Shine In" became so popular that they became hits outside of theatre circles; many of today's rock fans are unaware that these classic songs originated in a Broadway musical.
When people purchase tickets to Hair performances, they are gaining entry into a time capsule of one of the most contentious periods in American history. What makes Hair so interesting for modern audiences is that it is not purely a period piece. Since it was composed and first performed in the late '60s, it reflects how people really felt about those events as they were occurring. There is no after-the-fact editorializing. The music and sense of fun still stand up nearly 50 years later. Buy Hair tickets today!
