“Hair is more than just a musical: it is a social and cultural phenomenon” Michael Billington

Hair changed the face of musical theatre when it opened on Broadway in 1967.  Fast forward fifty years and its themes are just as relevant today as America and the world, face political division and its youth question and challenge leadership and authority. Hair’s sexually liberated ‘Tribe’ of New York hippies protesting under the shadow of the Vietnam war, is mirrored by today’s ‘Love Trumps Hate’ rallies and calls for impeachment of the American President.

With an incredible score featuring classic hit songs like Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In and Good Morning Star Shine, Hair is a really topical musical for this turbulent time.
