HAIR is about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius! It’s 1967 amidst the Vietnam War and a young tribe of hippies are questioning authority, fighting the establishment, dodging drafts, getting high, and living and loving in New York City. Claude, his best friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their Tribe of friends struggle to balance the demands of the harsh and violent world with their dream for a more beautiful and peaceful world. When Claude receives his draft notice, he must decide whether to join his friends in resisting the draft, or bow to the pressures of society and his conservative parents, thereby sacrificing his ideals and, possibly, his life. Hair was groundbreaking and defined the rock musical genre when it premiered in 1967, as it brought the counterculture movement into the theatre and the national spotlight. The issues the show brings up — alienation, civil disobedience, youthful defiance — continue to timelessly resonate today.
