LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) - HAIR*, the electrifying musical of the 60’s takes the stage next month in Little Rock as part of the Celebrity Attractions’ 2013-2014 Broadway season.
The rock musical about a group of young Americans searching for peace and love in a turbulent time has struck a resonant chord with audiences young and old. This electric celebration arrives at the historic Robinson Center Music Hall on Feb. 18-20 (Each performance is at 7:30 p.m.). Tickets are on sale now.
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 national tour is directed by Charles Roy and choreographed by Stephanie Ramphos. HAIR features costume design by Jennie Hollander, lighting design by Russell Thompson and sound design by Emily Porter. The production also features music direction by John Bronston and Mark Camilleri.
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.
