by Robert Barossi - May 12, 2014

BWW Reviews: AMERICAN IDIOT Rocks the Palace, But the Shallow Book Thwarts Over-All Effect
by Roy Berko - Apr 28, 2014

In 1968 'Hair,' dubbed the American Tribal Love-Rock musical, exploded on Broadway. It shocked the nation, but gave an accurate picture of a world rocked with chaos.

'Drugs, sex and rock and roll' became the mantra of the day and were clearly exposed on stage. The show's book was strong and the score was filled with top ten hits including 'Aquarius,' 'Good Morning Starshine,' 'I Believe in Love,' and 'Where Do I Go?' It became the seminal musical theatre offering illustrating 'theater representing the era from which it comes.' (more...)
