Broadway's Hair to Hold "Cut-In" for Oil Spill Relief Efforts
During this open to the public event, Bumble and bumble stylists will be on hand to give free hair-cuts to attendees. The hair trimmings will be donated to Matter of Trust, an environmental non-profit that has helped clean up oil spills since 1998 by reusing donated hair clippings from hair salons, barber shops, pet groomers, and wool farmers. Stuffing this donated hair into donated nylon stockings, this organization is creating highly absorbent booms to help contain the oil crisis in the Gulf of Mexico.
Cast members from the show will be on-hand throughout the afternoon to cheer-on participants, and there will be hourly raffles for tickets to the Broadway production.
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, the production is directed by Diane Paulus and choreographed by Karole Armitage. Hair features a book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot.
