Repertory Philippines Caps Season with HAIR, 11/17-12/17
Manila, Philippines--Repertory Philippines (REP) presents HAIR, Broadway's tribal love-rock musical, from November 17 to December 17 at Onstage Theatre, Greenbelt 1, Ayala Malls, Makati City.
Directed by Chris Millado, HAIR stars Markki Stroem and Topper Fabregas as Claude, together with George Schulze as Berger, Caisa Borromeo as Sheila, and a stellar cast of young performers. Ejay Yatco is the musical director.
Set in the tumultuous 1960s, HAIR follows the story of the twenty-somethings of New York City who band together to form a tribe--the hippies--as a cry of protest against the Vietnam War. On his way to enlist in the U.S. Army, Oklahoma farm boy Claude meets the energetic, irrepressible tribe of Central Park hippies. This free-spirited tribe, led by the charismatic Berger, inspires Claude to rebel against the war, his parents, and society, and to assert love, peace, and freedom.
From its groundbreaking use of rock music in musical theater to its fearless depiction of the decade's stark realities--from the bohemian underground, the sexual revolution, and the violent anti-war movement--HAIR is an unforgettable and iconic production that is truly a product of its time, and continues to be a relevant piece of theater up to today.
The angst and energy of the era are captured in the show's amazing musical score with classic hits such as "Let the Sun Shine In," "Aquarius," and "Good Morning Starshine." HAIR won the 1969 Grammy Award for Best Score from An Original Cast Show Album, while its 2009 Broadway revival earned the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
