Hair - 2009 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$37 - $127

With a score including such enduring musical numbers as "Let the Sunshine In," "Aquarius," "Hair" and "Good Morning Starshine," Hair depicts the 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 "tribe" in Hair creates an irresistable message of 'hope' that continues to resonate with audiences 40 years later.



This acclaimed production played Central Park last summer.

Featured Reviews For Hair


'Hair' arrives on B'way with its exuberance intact - Associated Press
If you want to know why this joyous revival, which opened Tuesday at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, is so successful, you need not look any farther than the show's first-act finale. No, not its brief display of nudity, but what is happening around it. In this moment of Dionysian frenzy, creators Gerome Ragni, James Rado and Galt MacDermot have neatly encapsulated the musical's themes. As the hippie tribe chants of beads, flowers, freedom and happiness, Claude, one of show's leads, poignantly sings, "Why do I live, why do I die, tell me where do I go, tell me why." Director Diane Paulus has done an extraordinary job in illuminating these two conflicting ideas — the clash of spontaneity and the search for identity — ideas that pulse through much of the evening. Paulus, along with choreographer Karole Armitage, are superb guiding spirits, galvanizing an energetic, appealing cast that has gotten better and better since the Public Theater's outdoor production last year.

Not So Free Love - The New Yorker
Will someone who’s associated with “Hair” (in revival at the Al Hirschfeld, under the direction of Diane Paulus) do the production a favor and turn the shit down? Let’s start with the sound design. As conceived by Acme Sound Partners, the show’s big crossover hits—“Aquarius,” “I Got Life,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and so on—still sound like themselves, melodically speaking, but the lyrics, not to mention the actors’ intonations as they sing sweetly of new beginnings, eternal hope, and the earth’s bounty, are overwhelmed by an ear-piercing treble, which not only raises the majority of the vocals to a pitch that bats might recognize but lifts the brass section of the onstage band into a series of sensation-numbing crescendos.
