There's an audition posting looking for actors for a new HAIR tour where the actors are playing the instruments. Thoughts?

Interesting approach. And not entirely unprecedented, either. Wonder how Michael Butler must feel.

it just says it's starting in Toronto. The contract runs through the end of May. sounds like a bus & truck tour.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Well, it's not produced by anyone I've heard of, etc. Seems odd to me. I wonder how they're updating it?

The director is actually Charles Roy.

It's being produced by Starvox Entertainment with the Classical Theatre Project. Don't know whos doing the tour booking yet. No dates either.

Rehearsals start in December, tour launches Jan. That's basically all I know. Open call was October 3.
