Hair tells the story of peace, love and hope, through a group of politically active hippies living a bohemian life in New York while fighting against and resisting the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friends Berger and Sheila, and their "tribe" are coming of age in the world of the sexual revolution while struggling with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or succumb to the pressures of conservative America to serve in Vietnam, compromising his principles and beliefs.
Fifty years ago Hair burst onto Broadway in the midst of the anti-Vietnam War movement and was groundbreaking in many ways. Since then, its integrated cast, messages of peace and love, and certified-platinum "rock" score have become iconic. With music by Galt MacDermot and book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, "Hair" has a string of hits that have been played all over the globe, including "(The Age of) Aquarius," "Let the Sun Shine In," Good Morning Starshine," (all #1 hits in 1969), "Hair," "Frank Mills" and more.
