Hair

A response to the Vietnam War, the original 1968 production of Hair broke the bounds of theater and questioned society’s definition of decency by putting drug use, nudity, and rebellion on stage. Nearly forty years later, however, controversy has become nostalgia. Modern audiences might call Hair a period piece: a chance to revisit the 60’s, hear great tunes, and chuckle at barefoot, flower power hippies. To the iPod generation, Hair probably seems as relevant as a dusty stack of record albums.
