HAIR - Grand Musicale
This is the hit American Tribal Love-Rock Musical with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. Based on the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the peace movement and absolute classics, as in Let the Sun Shine In, Aquarius, Hair, Where Do I Go.
Synopsis:
In New York City for the first time while on his way to enlist in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, Oklahoma farm hand Claude Hooper Bukowski meets up with a freewheeling group of Central Park hippies led by the irrepressible George Berger. When the unlikely friends meet upper-middle-class debutante Sheila Franklin sparks fly between the country boy and the city girl, and Berger’s troupe attempts to keep the young lovers together.
