Bay Area Musicals! to Present HAIR, 2/20-3/12
by BWW News Desk - Jan 15, 2016

Bay Area Musicals!, the newest non-profit theatrical organization to join the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area arts community, continues its inaugural season with the acclaimed tribal love-rock musical, Hair. This generation-defining musical tells the story of Vietnam-era youths awkwardly but exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion around them. Among them are Claude and Berger - a pair of friends battling against Claude's draft notice, and Sheila, who is in love with both of them, but her politically-active lifestyle leaves her little time to act on her feelings. Ultimately, Claude has to decide if the hippie life is for him or go to Vietnam. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience, Hair illustrates the 60s generation's search for meaning through various 'be-ins,' 'love-ins' and protests. The winner of the 2009 Tony Award for 'Best Revival of a Musical,' Hair features classic hits including, 'Aquarius', 'Hair', 'Going Down', 'Easy to be Hard', 'Good Morning Star Shine' and 'Flesh Failures/Let the Sun Shine.'
