This theatrical experience is wonderful, glorious, amazing, and life-changing. You have to see HAIR. I CANNOT WAIT!
Working on HAIR in NY was one of the most exciting experiences of my life. I have the best memories of those parties, dancing on the stage, watching rehearsals, discussing marketing plans, and coming up with unique, creative ideas to spread the love of this show. I’ll spare you all the photos, but have to share a few!
Check out HAIR when it’s in town this May. You won’t regret it!

With a score including such enduring musical numbers as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius,” “Hair” and “Good Morning Starshine,” HAIR depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the 60’s and 70’s that changed America forever. The musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the show resonates with an irresistible message of hope more than 40 years after it first opened on Broadway.
HAIR won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival as well as the Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. HAIR was also nominated for an additional seven Tony Awards including Best Direction, Best Choreography, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design. The cast recording was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
The New York Times says “Diane Paulus’s THRILLING, EMOTIONALLY RICH production delivers INTENSE, UNADULTERATED JOY.” Time Out New York says “HAIR SPEAKS TO A WHOLE NEW GENERATION,” and The Washington Post calls it “IRRESISTIBLE…THE BEST VERSION YET!”
