Photo Coverage: Mayor Bloomberg Takes in HAIR

Last night, Wednesday April 7, New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, took in a production of HAIR in addition to center stage when he joined the Tribe in the post-show dance party. BroadwayWorld was there for the photo op!

This is not the Mayor's first experience with Broadway's favorite hippies.  Last month, he donned extensions and hippie garb on stage with the Tribe at the Inner Circle fundraiser dinner (for which he also sang and danced).

The Tony Award-winning revival of HAIR: A Tribal Love-Rock Musical welcomed the new Tribe on Broadway, led by American Idol alums Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo, and newcomer Kyle Riabko on March 9, 2010.

The cast includes (in alphabetical order): Annaleigh Ashford (Jeanie), Jeannette Bayardelle (Dionne), Diana DeGarmo (Sheila), Vanessa Ray (Crissy), Kyle Riabko (Claude), Wallace Smith (Hud), Jason Wooten (Woof), Ace Young (Berger), Justin Badger (Tribe), Nicholas Belton (Swing), Larkin Bogan (Tribe), Natalie Bradshaw (Tribe), Catherine Brookman (Tribe), Briana Carlson-Goodman (Swing), Antwayn Hopper (Tribe), Jay Armstrong Johnson (Swing), Rachel Bay Jones (Mom), Mykal Kilgore (Tribe), Josh Lamon (Margaret Mead/Dad), Nicole Lewis (Tribe), Anastacia McClesky (Tribe), Paris Remillard (Tribe), Arbender Robinson (Swing), Kate Rockwell (Tribe), Cailan Rose (Tribe), Rashidra Scott (Tribe), Jen Sese (Tribe), Lawrence Stallings (Tribe), Terrance Thomas (Tribe), Emma Zaks (Swing), and Lee Zarrett (Tribe).

Choreographed 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).

Tickets for HAIR, playing the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, start at $37.00 and are available via Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit www.hairbroadway.com.
