COMES TO THE KRAVIS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

The 2009 Tony Award Winning Musical Revival HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, will play the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts for a limited engagement January 10-15, 2012. Tickets for HAIR are available now at the Kravis Center box office 701 Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach, by visiting www.kravis.org, or by calling 561.832.7469 or 800.572.8471.

With a score including such enduring musical numbers as “Let the Sun Shine In,” Aquarius,” “Hair” and “Good Morning Starshine,” HAIR depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the 60’s and 70’s that changed America forever. The musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the show resonates with an irresistible message of hope more than 40 years after it first opened on Broadway.
HAIR won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival as well as the Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. HAIR was also nominated for an additional seven Tony Awards including Best Direction, Best Choreography, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design. The cast recording was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
