Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of The Public Theater, announced the 26-member Broadway cast of HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical with a media meet and greet and BWW was there!

Newcomers to the cast include Gavin Creel, Caissie Levy and Sasha Allen, who join the rest of the tribe, who are reprising their roles from Central Park last summer.

Currently in rehearsal at the Union Square Theatre, HAIR begins preview performances on Friday, March 6 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 West 45th Street, NYC) with an Opening Night set for Tuesday, March 31, 2009.

The full cast of HAIR includes Sasha Allen (Dionne, White Boys Trio), Ato Blankson-Wood (Tribe), Steel Burkhardt (Electric Blues Quartet, Tribe), Jackie Burns (Black Boys Trio, Tribe), Allison Case (Crissy), Gavin Creel (Claude), Lauren Elder (Tribe), Allison Guinn (Tribe), Anthony Hollock (Tribe), Kaitlin Kiyan (Black Boys Trio, Tribe), Andrew Kober (Margaret Mead, Dad, Tribe), Megan Lawrence (Mother), Caissie Levy (Sheila), Nicole Lewis (White Boys Trio, Tribe), John Moauro (Tribe), Darius Nichols (Hud), Brandon Pearson (Tribe), Paris Remillard (Tribe), Megan Reinking (Black Boys Trio, Tribe), Bryce Ryness (Woof), Saycon Sengbloh (Abraham Lincoln, White Boys Trio, Tribe), Maya Sharpe (Tribe), Kacie Sheik (Jeanie, Tribe), Theo Stockman (Hubert, Tribe), Will Swenson (Berger) and Tommar Wilson (Tribe). Also part of the cast will be Briana Carlson-Goodman (Swing), Chasten Harmon (Swing), Jay Armstrong Johnson (u/s Claude), Josh Lamon (Swing), Ryan Link (u/s Berger) and Michael James Scott (Swing).

After a smash-hit run at Central Park‘s Delacorte Theater last summer, HAIR returns to Broadway for the first time in over 30 years. The story of a group of young Americans searching for love and peace during the Vietnam era, HAIR is a timeless portrait of a movement that changed the world. Its groundbreaking rock score paved the way for some of the greatest musicals of our time. Now, the "Age of Aquarius" dawns again in this jubilant new production directed by Diane Paulus, with choreography by Karole Armitage. HAIR features a book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, and music by Galt MacDermot.

The creative team also includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Michael McDonald (costume design), Kevin Adams (lighting design) and Acme Sound Partners (sound design).

As previously announced, Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel have joined forces with The Public Theater (Artistic Director Oskar Eustis; Executive Director Andrew D. Hamingson) - as co-lead producers - along with Elizabeth I. McCann, to present the upcoming Broadway production. The full producing entity will be announced shortly.

Tickets for HAIR (starting at $37.00) are available via Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200. The schedule is as follows: Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday - Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 & 8:00 p.m., Sunday at 2:00 & 7:30 p.m.
