STAGE TUBE: Behind the Scenes - Will Amber Riley, Sarah Hyland and Kristen Bell Be Stripping Down for Hollywood Bowl's HAIR?

ET went behind the scenes with HAIR stars Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, Sarah Hyland and more in rehearsal for The Hollywood Bowl's upcoming production of the musical and asked if any of them will be baring it all onstage as part of the show's 1960s "free love" vibe. Find out in the video below!

Hair will have three performances at the Hollywood Bowl this summer -- Friday and Saturday, August 1 and 2, at8 PM, and Sunday, August 3. Adam Shankman will direct and choreograph, Lon Hoyt will conduct, and Zach Woodlee will serve as associate director and associate choreographer.

The American Tribal Love-Rock musical, which won the Tony and Drama Desk Award for best revival of a musical in 2009, will star Kristen Bell as Sheila, Hunter Parrish as Claude, Amber Riley as Dionne, Jenna Ushkowitz as Jeanie and Beverly D'Angelo as Mom, Sarah Hyland as Chrissy, Mario as Hud, Jonah Platt as Woof, Benjamin Walker as Berger, and Kevin Chamberlin as Dad.

From its stunning Broadway premiere in 1968, Hair defined the "rock musical," exuberantly celebrating the hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960s with a rainbow score of hits - including "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," and "Easy to be Hard" - that have become ingrained in pop culture. Audiences will celebrate this groundbreaking American journey as we "Let the Sunshine In."

Hair has book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot. Conceived by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Hair was the opening production at the new Public Theatre in New York City's East Village in 1967. Hair opened on Broadway, at the Biltmore Theatre, on April 29, 1968 and ran for 1,750 performances, closing on July 1, 1972.
