Imagine Productions Presents HAIR, Begin. Today
Imagine Productions of Columbus presents Hair, Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, Music by Galt MacDermot, Produced for the Broadway Stage by Michael Butler, Originally Produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival Theatre, beginning today, August 6, and playing through August 17, 2014 at Wall Street Night Club. Directed by Michael Newsome.
Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the "tribe," and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who's about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger's war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude's straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as "Let the Sun Shine In," "Aquarius" and "Good Morning Starshine."
