    HAIR - a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through the tumultuous 1960s America! This exuberant musical about searching for truth, peace and love in Vietnam War-era America continues to strike a resonant chord with audiences of all ages. The themes and struggles in HAIR seem as vital and relevant today. The long list of chart-topping hit songs include “Aquarius,” Let the Sun Shine in,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and “Easy to be Hard”, became anthems of counter-culture and the sexual revolution and continue to have a profound impact on audiences. Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. They struggle to balance their lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. The musical's profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and nude scene caused much comment and controversy when it arrived on Broadway. Today, HAIR is more daring than ever!
