Welcome to the “Age of Aquarius.”
The year is 1967: LBJ is in the White House, The Vietnam War rages, seen nightly on TV news. Anti-war protests erupt. Martin Luther King leads civil rights marches. Robert Kennedy prepares to run for the presidency. And a new kind of human being appears. A new aesthetic is born. A love-moment, an awakening …
HAIR celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let the Sun Shine In.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, HAIR remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
