WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A tribe of the best and brightest young Bay Area musical theater artists convey the story of friends Claude and Berger, their roommate Sheila, and the group of hippies with whom they rebel against the Vietnam War through a familiar score of songs, including "Aquarius," "Manchester," "Hair," "Easy to Be Hard," "Where Do I Go," "Black Boys, White Boys," "Good Morning, Starshine," and "The Flesh Failures (Let the Sun Shine In)." The bohemian lifestyle of the characters encompasses racial integration, sexual freedom, drug use, and the mockery of religion, which were highly controversial practices when Hair debuted off-Broadway in 1967 and on Broadway in 1968. This concert presentation includes stories from the '60s as well as an exploration of the legacy of this enduring musical.
