New York City saw a different side of its typically conservative Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, when he donned extensions and hippie garb on stage with Broadway's cast of Hair at the Inner Circle fundraiser dinner on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at The Hilton Hotel.  Also joining the cast on stage in celebration were Jersey Shore cast members Snooki and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

Bloomberg's appearance at the event, for which he sang and danced alongside the Broadway Tribe, marked his eighth year at the annual event, which raises money for a number of causes including the Coalition for the Homeless, the Museum of the City of New York and the American Heart Association. Past performances by Bloomberg have included numbers with the Broadway casts of The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins and Spamalot. 

Bloomberg, Snooki, and "The Situation"  all took part in the skit, "Mair: 3 Terms of Peace and Music" with the Broadway HAIR tribe. At the event, Bloomberg announced a new initiative for the city: "Bette Midler will help us plant one million pot plants in the next 10 years."  He also announced, "I've already brought crime down at frat parties," he said. "Peeing in the bushes has dropped 15%."

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