Photo Coverage: HAIR Opening Night Party

HAIR began preview performances on Friday, March 6th, and celebrated its official opening last night, Tuesday, March 31, 2009. 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. BroadwayWorld.com's cameras partied down with the cast as the post show celebration began!

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.
