Hair Today

Is the seminal '70s musical still in style?

"I think the reason the show didn't work for audiences in 1977 (the flop Broadway revival) is because it was too close to 1969. I think now, 30 years later, there is enough distance, enough perspective for us to see that Hair is truly an original show and there's so much that remains relevant in a human sense. I think people will be surprised by how much joy there is."
